Is the Flipped Classroom the Future of Education?

How digital lessons at home and homework in class is turning the conventional classroom on its head.

“What makes the flip good is that it leads to other things,” Bergmann says, “it’s the pivot point.  Once the teacher gets out of the front of the room, deeper learning strategies happen — strategies that have been around for a long time but don’t get used very often because the teachers are stuck in the front of the room.”  The flipped model is not simply “sending kids to watch videos without rethinking about what actually happens in the class,” Bergmann notes.

Because We Need to Reach Today’s Generation

When I first started teaching in 1986, the resources I had available to me were limited to: a box provided by the publisher of my textbook, a three-ring binder of curriculum provided by the district, and/or whatever I had in my head.  Contrast this with 2015, where teachers not only have publisher materials and their own learning, but also a plethora of online information, simulations, lesson plans, and videos.

Should teachers embrace elements of online teaching into their daily practice or can they afford to teach out of “the box”?  In 2014, Project Tomorrow did a survey of over 500,000 parents, students, teachers, and administrators.  They included a few quesitons about how flipped learning, a teaching method which uses teacher-created online videos to maximize face-to-face time, should impact schools.  The survey found that:

“School administrators are expecting new teachers to know how to flip their classrooms prior to completing their certification process.  Last year, 41 percent of school leaders indicated that pre-service teachers should “know how to set up a flipped learning classroom,” this year that incrased to 46 percent.”

This survey shows that there is an expectation that educators be prepared to teach in new and innovative ways – specifically utilizing flipped learning methodology.  Teachers must employ instructional techniques which engage students in the process of learning.

We stand at a powerful moment in the world of education, where educators can leverage technology to bring about personalized learning for every student.  The ultimate winners in this new era will be the students.  Let’s face it: we are teaching the YouTube generation.  Online media is out there and it is ubiquitous for our students.  The time is now to embrace digital learning as a means to reach today’s generation.

Quotes from Dr. Doug Green regarding our recent Blog post + Book review

Dr. Doug Green has been an educator since 1970.  After teaching chemistry, physics, and computer science, he became an administrator for the next 30 years with experience at the secondary, central office, and elementary levels.

“When a teacher uses the flipped mastery system and gets 100% passing on the state test, all educators should take notice.  If you/your teachers haven’t started to flip yet, it’s time to start.”   ( Click HERE to read the complete original blog post )

Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Classroom Every Day by Jonathan Bergmann and Arron Sams (©2012, International Society for Technology in Education: Washington, D.C.) is a must read for anyone interested in flipping their classroom. It provides a window into a flipped classroom led by two educators who were driven by a simple question:  What is best for the students in my classroom?” This book chronicles their journey from their first shaky steps at trying to flip>/em> their classrooms to their current best practice so far flipped-mastery classroom model. Learn from their mistakes so that you can make new mistakes, and then share what you’ve learned to improve the model for all. Learn how flipping produces better test results and better learning. Also learn how it will allow you to interact more often with your students and develop more personal relationships.”

2015 signs a Memorandum of Understanding with Dr. T.C. Kao at Chung Hsin Academy in Taiwan

“After visiting Chung Hsin Academy in November and December of 2014, the team at were excited to meet a like-minded innovative educator like Dr. Kao.  Upon visiting the school and meeting with the school’s leaders, we were impressed with Dr. Kao’s vision to use Flipped Learning techniques to innovate the processes of teaching and learning.

The team is excited to partner with Chung Hsin Academy to create a customized Certification program with the hope of certifying this school as the first Certified school in Taiwan.

It is our joint vision that our partnership with Chung Hsin Academy will be the model for other Taiwanese schools and serve as an example of what exemplary Flipped Teaching looks like.

The team at looks forward to implementing a long-term plan with Chung Hsin Academy to train teachers, consult with staff, and inspire students to pursue deep and meaningful learning by utilizing the Flipped Learning model of instruction.”

Flipped Learning pioneers Jon Bergmann & Aaron Sams share their expertise in a dynamic new online course with videos of teachers flipping their classes, expert advice, and interactive activities.


NEW YORK, NY (April 21, 2015) Knowledge Delivery Systems (KDS), a leading provider of strategic and blended professional learning solutions for states and school districts, has announced today a partnership with flipped learning pioneers Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams, co-founders of, a leading global provider of flipped learning training services.

“The Flipped Classroom: Personalizing the Classroom to Reach Each Student Every Day” provides grades 6 to 12 educators with instructions for flipped learning.  This three credit course explores the pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment. Topics and activities in the course include:

Flipped learning techniques and Common Core instructional shifts

Examples from actual classrooms about a day in the life of a flipped classroom

Going deeper with flipped learning strategies in the classroom

How to get buy in from key stakeholders and address points of resistance

Organizing lessons with formative and summative strategies that work best with Flipped Learning

Troubleshoot specific issues unique to the Flipped Learning methodology

“Flipped Learning workshops are often taught in lecture style. This online course flips the flipped class training. Our interactive features allow the participants to learn by doing. In my opinion, this is the next best thing to having us come to do an on-site workshop,” said Bergmann.

“This intensely practical course gives participants a roadmap to implement flipped learning.  It is filled with videos of real teachers and advice from us about best practices.  This course is done in a completely online environment which mirrors many flipped learning principals,” said Sams.



April 2015   Jon Bergmann gave the keynote presentation to over 1,000 educators at HCT conference in Dubai


The Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) Reinforces UAE’s Smart Technology Initiatives at 3rd Annual Mobile Learning Conference

The Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT), the UAE’s largest higher education institution, showcased its leadership in the integration of mobile learning and technologies in education, when it inaugurated its Third Annual Mobile Learning Conference at the HCT-Dubai Men’s College this week.

This year’s conference, held under the theme of Towards a Smarter City, focuses on the impact of mobile technology on learning and society, and was convened with the full support and involvement from the Dubai Smart Government and the Watani Al Emarat Foundation. The opening day was comprised of 50 highly informative sessions and workshops.

The highly interactive event saw over 1,000 educational and technology experts from the HCT gather with representatives of UAE-based schools and post-secondary institutions, agencies and allied industry professionals, trainers and managers to share and discuss ideas and developments relating to the practical implementation of mobile and technology-based learning in the region.

February 2015 article:  How to Go Beyond the Basics of Flipped Learning

eCampus news logo

How three different educators are going beyond basic flips with innovative strategies


This is not your mother’s Flipped Learning.

Often thought of as an instructional method whereby students watch online instructional videos at home and come to class prepared to do “homework,” Flipped Learning has come a long way since its origins in 2007.

The concept has since evolved to include myriad instructional methods that take the basic concept and go further in method to turn traditional higher educational learning models on their heads.

“Professors are starting out with basic classroom ‘flips,’ and then moving into deeper learning pedagogies,” said Jon Bergmann, chief learning officer at and a pioneer of the innovative teaching concept, “including deeper project-based learning and flipped mastery models (i.e., where students prove that they learned a specific concept and then independently move onto a new module).”

While Bergmann still sees the original “view video at home, do homework in class” model as a good starting point for new Flipped Learning adopters, he says educators are helping students interact with those videos and gain understanding from them. “It’s not just about assigning a video and hoping that the class watches it,” says Bergmann. “It’s about getting to the next level and truly engaging students in class, and in a way that positively impacts the learning experience.”

February 2015 The Stile Book Club recommends reading Jon & Aaron’s second published book, “Flipped Learning: Gateway to student engagement”

Here is an excerpt from their book review:

“Worth a read?     In a word: yes.

The numerous teacher reflections along with the introduction by Bergmann and Sams that introduces flipped learning and addresses misconceptions about the concept make a compelling case for what is rapidly changing the education landscape.

The selection of reflections is varied, from the usual high school science teachers in relatively affluent school districts to to primary school teachers in disadvantaged areas, and almost everyone in-between. There’s something for everyone. However, I wish I’d read Flip Your Classroom first. We’ve ordered our copy and will be reviewing it soon!”
