What is a "Flipped Classroom"?
"Flipping" out in School?
Overcoming Obstacles
Equitable Access
"Flipped Learning is a pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where the educator guides students as they apply concepts and
engage creatively in the subject matter" (Flipped Learning Network, 2014).

The most common concern for flipping a classroom is "what if my students don't have internet access at home?" This is a valid concern, but it should not be dead end. There are ways to overcome this hurtle!
Burning DVDs/jump drives for students without internet.
Opening computer labs before/after school
Allowing student checkout of portable devices (tablets, portable DVD players, IPODs, etc).

a challenging curriculum and learning opportunities
the highest quality instructional resources and tools
a plan of continuous improvement
a plan for developing and supporting school and community partnerships
Flipped classrooms helps us bring this vision to life. It is differentiated, high quality, engaging instruction that also serves as bridge from the classroom to the home and community. Here is a video that explains how Flipped Classrooms ensure a challenging curriculum:

of The Flipped Classroom:
This method of instruction is easy to adapt to differing age levels, learning styles, and subject matter. The teacher decides what information to share and how to share it! The level of integration also depends on the teacher.
Here are some articles that give helpful information for dealing with equitable access:



What you need to flip your classroom
The 10 Best Web Tools For Flipped Classrooms

You will need a computer, internet access, a video recorder, a microphone, and software or websites to distribute your information. Most of the tools we need are already in our classrooms, and many are free to download and use. Please read the article below to learn more about great tools to use in a flipped classroom.

Technology sometimes comes with bumps in the road. If you are working on your flipped lessons at school, you have your IT coach and technology team there as technical support. If you are working at home, you have tons of support through other educators paving this new road.

Flipped Class
Every instructional strategy comes with limitations or concerns. Flipped classrooms are no exception. The primary concern is equitable access, and we have already discussed methods of overcoming this hurdle. Another concern is student motivation. What if students have the technological capability of participating the flipped assignment, just not the motivation? What can teachers do when students just won't do the work?
Some suggestions are:
have requirements
have consequences
give them time to work in class, before or after class
peer teaching and collaboration
How Much Does it Cost?
In today's economic climate, it is important that
educators stay good stewards of the tax payer's money. In our system, we already have all of the hardware needed to participate in flipped classrooms. Software is available for free downloads. Many training videos are free also, and our Instructional Technology Coach would be an asset we already have procured that teachers could tap into if they need additional support.
The bottom line is: our system would incur no additional costs for implementing flipped classrooms.
Classroom Use
The ways to implement flipped learning is as diverse as the children content we teach. This is not a scripted program by any means, or a canned curriculum. It's a framework for instructional delivery that each teacher can personalize to suit their own teaching strengths and the needs of their students. By having the students come to class ready to work instead of ready to listen to lecture, students have more time to collaborate, more time for inquiry based learning projects, more time for dialogue and peer teaching. If you look at Bloom's taxonomy, students will be doing more of the lower level skills outside the classroom, and the higher order skills in the classroom.
Here is a video that explains how flipped classrooms increase student engagement.
What Does the Research Say?
To date, there's no scientific research base to indicate exactly how well flipped classrooms work. But some preliminary nonscientific data suggest that flipping the classroom may produce benefits. In one survey of 453 teachers who flipped their classrooms, 67 percent reported increased test scores, with particular benefits for students in advanced placement classes and students with special needs; 80 percent reported improved student attitudes; and 99 percent said they would flip their classrooms again next year (Flipped Learning Network, 2012). Clintondale High School in Michigan saw the failure rate of its 9th grade math students drop from 44 to 13 percent after adopting flipped classrooms (Finkel, 2012).
A Growing Practice, but Little Research

The flipped classroom seems to be catching on. According to the Flipped Learning Network (2012), membership on its social media site rose from 2,500 teachers in 2011 to 9,000 teachers in 2012. But does research show that this innovation, sensible as it sounds, really improves learning?
Goodwin, 2013
Here is a great article from ISTE regarding implementing Common Core using Flipped Learning:

If You Can Flip a Classroom, You Can Flip a District
This article describes one superintendent's implementation process. Here are the key points:

Convincing teachers to embrace technology in the classroom was the first step in the process of getting students to use technology at home for learning.
Flipping instruction and moving from teacher-centered instruction to student-centered instruction is a huge paradigm shift. There are many broad pedagogical changes that need to take place.
In reality, through professional development and campus leadership, we must empower teachers to take risks and use the great subject knowledge base they already have to develop new methods and activities that foster student-centered and collaborative learning. Simply adding technology to the old methods of learning and teaching won't add any value to education.
I can't stress enough the importance of observing other districts before you begin planning.
As districts look to adopt these technologies and new learning and teaching initiatives, it is important to remember that implementation won't always come easy. However, an examination of best-practice examples, calculated planning and staff training will lead to a smoother process — and ultimately improved student outcomes.
Moczygemba, 2014
Reflection of Emerging Technology
When I began this project I knew I wanted to learn about something that would benefit my students and improve my teaching. Being a kindergarten teacher, it can be a challenge to find strategies that incorporate technology in the classroom. I was looking for a way to connect with my student's parents, since Kindergarten is usually their first experience with public school, and they are so eager to work with the teacher, and have so many questions. I also will be on maternity leave the first 12 weeks of school, so I needed a way to connect to my students, and cover lessons I just could not leave in a substitutes hands. This lead me to a flipped classroom.
I have created a blog where I will share videos of myself teaching from home. Some videos will be geared for parents, explanations of what kindergarten writing really looks like, answering questions about how to teach sight words, etc. It is my hope that the blog and the videos will help me earn the trust and respect of the parents, even though I will not be in the classroom every day, and it will ease the transition when I do return.
I also plan to use the blog and videos of myself reading stories to my students, singing songs, and teaching them the content they will need to work on projects together in class. This will be done hand in hand with my substitute teacher, with the blessing of my principal, and I am very excited to see how this helps me build a relationship with my students, and stay involved in their progress.
