Neil Martin's insight:

Excellent look at how using a Mastery Based Model of learning can create a truly "flipped" classroom.  I'm not a fan of the term flipped learning and am sceptical of lots of things about it but this seems like an excellent application of its principles.

One step beyond - assessing what we value - David Didau: The Learning Spy

One step beyond - assessing what we value - David Didau: The Learning Spy | Transforming Pedagogy | Scoop.it

The urgency of accountability results, inexorably, in teaching to the test. And this, sadly, ends up with teachers teaching stuff that they don’t particularly value.
