Flipped Classroom Revisited

Back in 2012, I posted about the Flipped Classroom trend (Teaching Style – Real World/Flipped Classroom). This trend started 10 years ago and need 96 percent of teachers using “flipped learning”. The trend has became a pedagogical approach for student engagement.  Jon Bergmann and Arron Sams, the creators of this trend, has created a network for teacher called The Flipped Learning Network (FLN; flippedlearning.org). This nonprofit network provides teachers with resources needed to implement a flipped classroom. Teachers when you get a chance, visit http://www.flippedlearning.org and check out my previous blog posting Teaching Style – Real World/Flipped Classroom.

Free Video Resources

If you are wanting to add supplement videos to serve as a resource for your class (traditional or online),depending on the courses and content matter you teach, many networks offer their TV episodes and videos (or portions of them) online for a limited time.

Also, did you know that YouTube has full length movies and documentaries? Again, how long they will be offered will vary, but it may be worth looking into.

And if you are looking for more free documentaries, here is just another site:
