The using, creating and sharing free online resources in a flipped classroom infographic is based on the results of a survey that the Open Educational Resources Research Hub (OERRHub) conducted to find out how flipped educators are using and thinking about open educational resources. I highly encourage you to read the article Using, creating and sharing free online resources in a flipped classroom. Also, there is a version of this post and infographic in Spanish here. Also, you may want to check The Educators’ Guide to Flipped Classroom, where you will find answer on how does a flipped classroom contribute to student learning, the top benefits and disadvantages of a flipped classroom, and last but not least, how to successfully Flip your classroom.
To counter common misconceptions and bring clarity to discussions about “Flipped Learning,” the governing board and key leaders of the Flipped Learning Network (FLN) announced a formal definition of the term. They also released the Four Pillars of F-L-I-P™ and a checklist of eleven indicators that educators must incorporate into their practice.
On the one hand, the portfolio may focus predominately on learning and reflection. Such a portfolio may come to resemble a student's journal or sketchbook. On the other hand, the portfolio may be used primarily for evaluation and assessment, becoming more a documentation of achievement that a personal workspace.

El mercado de las TIC en educacion está comenzando a ofrecer productos y servicios, y una manera de entender su integración y uso, acorde con las prácticas de la mayor parte del profesorado. Eso significa que estamos asistiendo a propuestas muy poco innovadoras desde el punto de vista didáctico, que reproducen estrategias y prácticas tradicionales y conservadoras, centradas en el docente y el currículum y que desaprovechan completamente todo el potencial transformador de las TIC. Dichas prácticas, además, incrementan el grado de vigilancia y control de la "performance" los estudiantes y se alinean con la corriente más neoliberal y conservadora de la evaluación sumativa constante y supuestamente objetiva de los estudiantes. Nuevos desarrollos, como las plataformas de aprendizaje "adaptativo", que se vislumbran en un futuro a medio plazo, no solo reforzarán, en nombre de una supuesta "personalización", el aprendizaje entendido como reproducción de contenidos, sino también desprofesionalizarán a los docentes más si cabe que las tecnologías tradicionales como los libros de texto. Las TIC se usan para presentar contenidos y evaluar la retención de los y las estudiantes.
Without professional development that can give teachers the full practical knowledge on the use of technology, you will not see technology being successfully integrated in the classrooms for better learning.
In school, we give people texts when they have not had enough experience in the worlds the texts are about, the experiences that give the texts meaning. It is as if we were to give kids game manuals without the games. It only works for kids who are getting a lot of experiences at home—backed up by lots of talk with adults about these experiences, talk which helps the kids learn to map language on to experience and vice-versa—but it is disastrous for less advantaged kids.
