Flipping the Classroom - Getting Started

During a typical 45 minute class there is little time for a teacher to interact with each student, or to allow the students time to practice and ask for help.  This is something that we can change easily by flipping the classroom.  The first thing to know about flipping the classroom is that there is no one way to flip, the key is to find a way to create more engagement and interactivity in the classroom by changing the typical format.

For me this meant creating a digital learning space where students had access to videos of me going over notes, links to websites and articles that were differentiated due to content and student ability, as well as tools to increase communication and questioning in and out of the classroom.  My focus was to increase the time I had to interact with my students by decreasing the time devoted to whole class activities, such as lectures or anything else that was keeping my students from being active in their learning.
