How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Libraries thru time | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

To be a fearless, 360 leader you have to step outside of your comfort zone. The experience provides the opportunity for growth! #leadupchat #edchat #mschat 

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 17, 2015 11:54 AM

Vygotsky talked of the Zone of Proximal Development, and this article is in line with that foundational philosophy about learning.  When we think about improving schools, both of Vygotsky and this article apply.  We need leaders, teachers, and students operating outside their comfort zone, taking risks, setting goals, and learning.  There is a danger in struggling schools to push too hard and move buying the productive zone for learning.  This article speaks well to that aspect of learning.  With good intentions, leaders at building, district, and state level often push a school and omits staff beyond the productive learning zone into the danger zone.  This is done through programs, initiatives, and monitoring often with the goal of providing support, but with the result of overwhelming the school and staff.
