27 Simple Ways To Flip The Classroom

We chat about flipping classrooms every week on Edudemic and it’s for good reason: this relatively new classroom organization style has been adopted by countless teachers around the world. Typically, the kind of adoption flipped classrooms has seen is reserved for major things like the Common Core or even iPad integration. But flipped classrooms has teachers, administrators, and students all engaged and placing the learning on center stage rather than the teacher.

If you’re looking to take the first step(s) toward flipping your classroom, online course, or other form of education … this visual by Mia MacMeekin (check out her awesome blog here and her popular ‘27 Ways To Be A 21st Century Teacher‘ visual we ran here) details some bite-size ideas for anyone looking to flip the classroom. From visiting a local museum to simply watching the news, Mia details more than two dozen quick ways to think about dragging the educational experience out of the classroom. She quite rightly talks about how flipping a classroom is about a lot more than just putting your lessons online. It’s about turning the idea of education on its head and getting students excited to learn everywhere. Not just online.

    Flipping the Classroom is something that my school district is pushing us to use especially with our Pre-AP classes. The problems or issues that have arisen end up being the availability of technology for our students at home. I am looking forward to reading about Mia MacMeekin’s 27 ways in hope of finding some kind of solution or suggestion that would help us.

    I truly like your site. I recently had a professional development day in which several ideas were thrown at us all in one day.
    The only thing I truly got out of that day, was the Flipped Classroom. It seemed something I would do for next year. Hope the students are willing to do homework, fun homework that prepares them for the next day.
    Many of my minorities do not have internet access and when they do (at school) they play on it or they do not know how to find the information. I need baby steps for those students and AP steps for others. I also need lesson plans I could put into action from 1st day of school. Archaeology project and a museum field trip would be my first lesson plan. A trial would be for later on or maybe a United Nations Week. Any help you can provide, I would appreciate. Iris
