In my opinion, this is not a silver bullet and it is not for everyone. Also, there is no one way to flip your classroom. I hope to share a variety of resources, articles, and blogs that will give you options and challenge the way we think about education.
I am also working on an action research project with Brian Bobbitt to look at the effects of the flipped classroom on student engagement and motivation. I am lucky to work with Brian Bennett in my school district and he has been working with us and our teachers during this project. I will be sharing our adventures and results as we travel down this road! I hope you follow along! Below is a video that Brian Bennett made to introduce the flipped classroom to our teachers before a professional development session.

Tools for flipping
The flipped classroom is about a lot more than just making videos and there are a variety of ways to curate content for your students. However, video is probably the most popular. Here are some great resources.
TechSmith - This company should be your best friend. They have the best software and an amazing team! Snagit, Camtasia, and Jing are three fantastic screen recording and video editing tools. They also have two amazing apps in ScreenChomp and Coach's Eye. Click here to see TechSmith's Flipped Classroom page.
