For several years now I've used the Livescribe Pen to help students that have been absent. When the Khan Academy came online, I was excited that kids were finally having access to learning in a way that I believed in, but had no idea that it would take off on such a global scale! Now that I've read information about the flipped classroom, I'm excited to do a unit next year using this model. I'm not sure which one, or when, but it is my goal to give this a full fledged effort next year. Since I will be using PBLs with the students, I feel like this will be able to maximize our time for labs in the classroom.
Is anyone already doing flipped classrooms? Any pointers for middle school kids?
