How to Start Your Students on the Flipped Experience

So yesterday when George Coe and I were teaching how to flip, Frank Franz was sitting on the sidelines and occasionally answering questions.  One of the best questions was how do you get your students to accept the concept of flipping.  Well Frank is more than on top of this as he has a Google Sites page you will want to check out as well as a video for students to be introduced to the concept as well as parents (above).  But it is better than that as Frank is flipping his back to school night (in VA we have the parents come in and meet the teachers for 10 minutes).   So Frank (and I this year) are e-mailing our parents our flipped video and then giving them a Google form for their questions.  Then, for the 10 minutes we see them will give go over the questions and additional ones that come up so the parents can actually experience what their kids are doing in class.   Frank is also doing standards based learning this year which he also explains in the video.

Hey Ken, my name is Wesley Etheridge. I was assigned to your blog for my EDM 310 course. Here's a link to our class blog and my personal blog for the class. http://edm310.blogspot.com

It would be great if you have the time to check them out.

Anyways, this whole concept of a flipped classroom is new to me. However, I must admit that I like everything about it. I wish the school I graduated from would have had something like this. The lecturing outside of the classroom is easily my favorite part of the concept, but something else that grabbed my attention is the Standards Based Grading. The way Frank is using formative assessments as practice for the summative assessments is the part that intrigued me.

As I mentioned before; I've never familiarized myself with a flipped classroom, but it's something I would like to implement in my classroom when I begin to teach.
