The flipped classroom

The flipped classroom has continued to enjoy momentum years after its introduction, speaking to its flexible nature, and to the need for a real change in thinking in how we think of time and space in education.

Technology has been, more than anything else, the catalyst for the flipped movement. With YouTube now nearly as ubiquitous as the television in many homes, access to video content is more seamless than ever.

Further, teachers have taken advantage of not just video channels but a collective video literacy to realize the potential of flipping the classroom. Students are comfortable viewing videos, and teachers are more and more able to quickly create, edit, and distribute video content (with apps like Explain Everything) with a variety of devices. (See here for 40 viewing comprehension strategies.)

Below is a list 54 flipped classrooms tools for teachers and students–both equally important because in a flipped classroom, both teachers and students are consistently interacting with technology, often independently and asynchronously. Let us know in the comments if there’s a great tool you think that needs added to the list.
