Thanks to Barbara Bray’s kindness, I’ve been invited to participate in an ISTE SIG-ILT webinar, The Flipped Classroom. Here’s  a quick overview from the information page:

Barbara Bray asked Ramsey Musallam, Jason Kern, and Miguel Guhlin to present some ideas, examples and more. They graciously agreed to share their ideas, tips, and more then we’ll invite questions from the audience to share in a great conversation about flipping the classroom. 

The Flipped Classroom Panel includes:
Ramsey Musallam (http://www.flipteaching.com)Ramsey is a high school chemistry teacher at Science Department Chairperson at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory in downtown San Francisco, and an adjunct professor of education at the University of San Francisco. Ramsey’s doctoral research focused on the cognitive benefits of using sceencasting and tablet technology to help facilitate meaningful learning. 
Jason Kern (http://edtechemu.blogspot.com/2011/01/flipping-economics-classroom.html)Jason is the Director of Technology at The Oakridge School, a K-12 school in Arlington, TX (www.theoakridgeschool.org). He went back in the classroom to co-teach an economics class last spring to try out the flipped model. This is what the economics post and blog are about. The class continues to use the flipped model so the blogs are current with this semester’s new students. They have also had several other teachers use the flipped model for appropriate units including middle and upper school science, math and foreign language. Jason thinks flipping is the best pedagogical tool to gain back valuable class time and allow teachers to spend more time doing hands-on learning. 
Miguel Guhlin (http://www.mguhlin.org/2012/01/3-tips-on-flipping-your-classroom-with.html)As Director of Instructional Technology for a large urban district in Texas, Past President of the state-wide TCEA Technology Education Coordinators group in one of the largest United States technology educator organizations, he continues to model the use of emerging technologies in schools. You can read his published writing, engage him in conversation via his blog at Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org.

Your host is Barbara Bray PD Chair for SigILT (http://barbarabray.net)Moderator is Katie Christo President, SigILT

To be honest, I’m frightened to death of being a part of this conversation as a professional educator because I haven’t implemented “flipped classroom” methodology before.

That fear aside, it wasn’t too difficult to imagine how iPads could fit into the Flipped Classroom vision, which is what caught Barbara’s attention.
For fun, I’ve decided to explore The Flipped Classroom from a contrarian perspective, the first blog entry appearing today. I welcome your insights and opinions (including the, “You don’t know what you’re talking about!!”) since it illuminates the various points of view that exist about this.
