This is one of the BEST videos to explain Flipping the Classroom!
But I have a sort of controversial or CONTRARY view on it.
Create the video, assign the video to be watched out of class, but then show the video before the lesson. WHY, you may ask? Doesn't that negate the whole thing? No! The Digital Divide in my school is real.
Some of my kiddos don't have smart devices, reliable Internet access at home or a parent who is avail at night to drive them to the public library (some of my parents work evenings) If you ask them if they can watch the video they will fib to maintain their pride that they can, but some can not. It's not fair for even ONE KID to be made to feel left out or marginalized - Also, some kids might just not watch the video before the lesson (I know, shocker!) SO play the gosh darn video before the lesson - add another day to the lesson if you have to!
I also have my PAC computers in the library that is avail for this when it comes up. What do you think?

We're asking principals who use Twitter and the photo-sharing service Instagram to post photos throughout the day on Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015, that capture the moments that represent their daily lives as school leaders.
This is such a nice idea! I LOVE seeing pics of principals
w/ kiddos at school all around the country and the globe!

'Almost every day, I slip food to one of my students. Both of his parents are in prison. Or, one of his parents is in prison and the other is dead. We can’t quite get the full story from him....Where there is money, there is education. Where there isn’t money, there is excessive testing, lack of curricular options, and struggle.'
Sometimes it's the last minute ideas that work the best! I had a teacher ask me to present something about creating book trailers to his students. I threw this Slides presentation together, added some sample Powtoons I'd made last week, and they loved it.
