In a flipped setting, where teachers are organizing their content for students to use any time, it is important for that material to be presented in a way that is as engaging and relevant as possible. I use Schoology and Google Classroom to organize and curate my flipped lessons, assignments, and all my supplemental material. Both of these tools organize information as a list, forcing my students to scroll through a long list of posts and files to get to the one that they need. It struck me this year that I was still organizing my content linearly, listing files in Schoology or providing posts in Google classroom that follow in much the same way my traditional classroom ran. It showed a stepwise progression through the curriculum and that does not need to happen in a flipped environment. Traditional classes are bound to a linear format because a teacher can only teach one lesson at a time. Lessons in a flipped setting are recorded, and because of that, the videos can be watched in any order and don’t need to follow any particular prescribed order as long as the integrity of the learning goals are maintained. Traditional linearity didn’t make any sense to me, and once I saw it, I couldn’t unsee it.
