Flipped teaching changes everything, from how students learn to how teachers teach. Flipping a classroom allows a teacher to spend less time lecturing and more time working with students. The focus becomes less about giving information to students and more about guiding students through the process of applying the information, thinking critically about the topic, or practicing a specific skill. With more time for application and practice in the classroom, teachers are able to get a more accurate picture of the learners in their classes, making collaborative assignments, remediation, and project based learning more manageable and effective. By creating instructional videos, teachers can also use lecture time more efficiently - there are no interruptions for questions, PA announcements, behavior management, etc...While it may take more planning time, at least initially, flipped teaching allows for more quality learning time in the classroom. In addition to being effective in terms of student learning, flipped learning is also a valuable professional development tool. Resources such as the Discovery Education Network provide great tools for flipping professional development. Having teachers view videos or webinars prior to meeting allows for teachers to develop knowledge and opinions about the topic at hand, opening the door for more meaningful discussions.
Great list of resources. I especially how you broke up each resource by the subject area/grouping. Good job of sharing the resources to Twitter.
