Flip Your Classroom by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams
Flipping the classroom has transformed our teaching practice. We no longer stand in front of our students and talk at them for 30 to 60 minutes at a time. This radical change has allowed us to take on a different role with our students…we realize we could never go back to teaching in the traditional manner."
I had to see for myself how well the flipped classroom model worked, and my experience has transformed both my own teaching approach and the learning experiences of my students. They love using technology, so lessons became more personal and individualized. Students were finally learning at a pace that was appropriate for them.
Nothing brings joy to my heart than seeing more students really understand math! It's why I have continued to teach for 20 years. Flipping allows me to reach even more students, engage them, and fill the gaps in their learning, and it is thrilling to watch them making progress. The following from Bergmann and Sams’ book speaks volumes:
The author is a proud mother and wife, living in Sonoma, Ca. She has 21 years teaching mathematics. She loves technology and how it enhances student learning, engagement, and achievement.
