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?

The short video is a powerful flipped learning tool. This video visually and audibly explains how to flip a classroom. Don't limit this though to just the's flipped learning, wherever you and the students are.

What Happens When Students Use Technology Better Than Teachers? - TeachThought

What Happens When Students Use Technology Better Than Teachers? - TeachThought | Education by Pollet |

"You know the content, you understand pedagogy, and you can navigate the minefield of diplomacy when dealing with parents, students, administrators, literacy coaches, and the local news station when they want to see the iPads glow on the students faces.

You know how to manage and coddle, inspire and organize, assess and deliver content.

But the technology is different. That part you do okay with, but, truth be told, the students are geniuses with technology. Born hackers. And of course they are, you tell yourself.

They’re digital natives."

Hmmm.. something every teacher should look out for

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 19, 2014 8:12 PM

I think, to some extent, this sometimes overstated. There are students who won''t  listen for a variety of reasons. That has always been the case. I found that most students are willing to learn. I am sitting in a university library with some digital natives. Most of them are here to learn and it shows.
