This past July we had the pleasure of featuring flipped classroom pioneers Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams at BbWorld 2015. We received such a positive response to their keynote and panel sessions that we invited them to present during our Fall 2015 K-12 Blackboard Innovative Teaching Series. We asked Aaron to provide a short preview of his presentation. Here’s what he shared with us:

If you are reading this blog, and considering the flipped classroom, you have probably already asked yourself that all-important question: “What is the best use of face-to-face time with students?” With the semester beginning to wind down, now is a great time to give that question additional consideration as you either begin implementing or improving upon your flipped classroom model for next semester.

And if you have been participating in the K-12 Blackboard Innovative Teaching Series this fall, featuring educators from across the country, including my colleague Jon Bergmann, then you already know that there are many different ways to successfully implement a blended or flipped learning model. However, becoming a flipped classroom master requires five critical components to truly be successful.

5 critical steps for a successful flipped classroom:

  1. Plan for your flipped classroom
  2. Educate stakeholders
  3. Anticipate resistance and have a plan
  4. Design interactivity
  5. Reinvent your class time

If you are interested in learning more about these steps, and ways you can implement them in your classroom, school, or district, be sure to register and join my upcoming webinar “Five Steps to Get Started with the Flipped Classroom.”
