I just finished working on my flipping presentation for Teachers Leading Cobb Summer Conference (Yes, I know how that sounds). I'm excited and nervous at the same time. Excited because I get to share what I believe is a tremendous opportunity for teachers to improve their craft. Nervous because I want to make sure people come away from my session with the tools they need to be successful in their classes next year.
This was my first year flipping and I have learned so much! Everything (with the exception of Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every day) I have learned about flipping has been online. Through the internet I have been able to peek into the classrooms of some great teachers who are flipping their classes. I have been able to learn from the comfort of my home while reading their blog posts and watching their videos showing their classes in action. I have even had an opportunity to chat online and get clarification when things weren't going as I'd hoped. (Thank you Crystal!) Then I could go into my classroom and apply what I'd learned at home. Wait a minute . . . Isn't that what flipping is all about!
