Seeing the flipped classroom grow from grassroots to CNN has been an awesome experience. In his interview with CNN this week, Greg Green of Clintondale High School (Clinton Township, MI) did a fantastic job of representing the passion of the educators in the movement. This clip (and hopefully others to come) will introduce a new audience to these bright spots in education, but it’s the discussion that follows that will shape what happens next.
As I’m typing this, there are 538 comments and counting on the article. This is a really exciting chance to get more educators involved in this public discussion and help focus on the positives things that are happening in education that don’t always get the media attention they deserve. Follow this link to participate in the discussion .
If you’re new to the Flipped Class model and would like to explore what it’s all about, here are some additional sources of information for you.
– Clintondale High School’s Website and Video Library: www.flippedhighschool.com
– A (slightly) extended version of Greg’s story and what flipped classroom has meant for his students.
– The Flipped Class Network Ning- A network of over 2,700 teachers that regularly discuss issues surrounding the flipped classroom (and education in general)
We’re excited, of course, because Greg and his teachers have used TechSmith products to make this happen. They’re using Camtasia Relay to record all of their lessons and Camtasia Studio to do some extra editing work when necessary.
