Several years ago I decided to flip my classroom.
To get started I read the book Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day by Aaron Sams and Jonathan Bergmann, joined several groups online and followed a couple of entities on Twitter. That spring I took the last term of the year and flipped it. Students brought their own devices to class and together we traversed the objective sheet and the remainder of the curriculum.
One of the most important outcomes of this pilot was that the students liked being in charge of their own learning, even if, as 8th grade students, they were not totally ready for it. This epiphany brought me to the blended learning movement.
