The Teacher’s guide to Flipped Classrooms

Check out this great Edudemic article that curates various resources on the flipped classroom model that any teacher needs.

Flipping the ESL classroom

I’ve been experimenting more and more with flipping the classroom and it is getting results.

As this Edudemic article states, “Flipped learning has been around for a while. It’s a rethinking of the standard classroom model that puts students in the driver’s seat. With the influx of technology into education, the flipped classroom model has really taken off. In fact, it’s one of the hottest education trends we’ve been monitoring on Edudemic for the past 4 years. We published a useful guide to flipped classrooms many moons ago but were excited to see an updated visual guide to flipped classrooms from the fine folks at We Are Teachers. It details the basics of flipping, apps that you should use in a flipped classroom, and more.”
