Ultimately, success with a flipped class is a combination of understanding the pedagogical goals and using the technology and method to support them. Evansville (Indiana) science teacher Brian Bennett describes the Flipped Classroom as an ideology, not a methodology:
Video itself will not help kids achieve more in your class. The flipped classroom is about making connections with learners and differentiating your instruction. If videos are a part of that multi-faceted plan, great. If they are not, still great.
