I was graciously asked by Jeff Stanzler and Rory Hughes to present to the University of Michigan Education 504 class "Teaching with Technology". The class is one that all MAC (Masters of Arts with teacher Certification) students must take and one that I took 14 years ago when I was in the MAC program at U of M. Enjoy the presentation.

- 2013.10.17: "This is a fantastic explanation of how flipped classrooms work. It's very clear how there are various forms - from the most basic (doing just bookwork) to complex models (project based learning)." Ariel Margolis - Blog Comment
- 2013.10.16: "Fantastic, thanks for doing this. I'll be able to use this to show some of my colleagues what flipping is all about as they are very hesitant of letting go their old ways and anything different. Also this is exactly what I have found with flipping my physics classes, you summed it up perfectly" Jonathan Kilpatrick - Comment left at The Flipped Learning Network Ning
- 2013.10.16: "Thanks for explaining the difference between the traditional vs. flipped classroom! The flipped classroom would be great for older students who have access to computers and the internet. I wish my teen could be in flipped classrooms as he'd LOVE the more hands-on rather than lecture approach to learning!" Kara Witham, a traditional teacher - YouTube Comment

12.5 years into my traditional teaching career, I decided to flip all my classes simultaneously. After one semester of Flipping Physics, I asked the students to evaluate the flipping educational approach. Approximately 75% of the student responses were positive and 25% were negative. A very small percentage were mixed. Here is a sampling of students responses: (thank you to each of you for letting me post your responses here.)
- “I liked [flipping] better, and I felt that I understood the material more. I also enjoyed the fact that I could pause the videos and come back to them.” Ashley Peper
- “I loved it. At the beginning I was very skeptical about it but after the first couple of videos I really improved. All of my test scores went up. It takes some getting used to but really does help.” Libby Quinn
- “My grade increased significantly because I had the chance to ask more questions as well as more time to work.” Steven Collareno
- “I loved it! I think the class time before quizzes really saved me because I was able to ask questions I might have had the night before.” Cassidy Minghine
- “I was fine with Flipping Physics (my grade is actually a lot higher [while flipping]). Sometimes with long videos it can get a little boring / easy to get distracted but it wasn’t much of a big deal. I liked to take my own notes while watching the vids & if I missed something I referred to the online notes – very helpful! Flipping Physics allowed me to be more disciplined when it came to fully understanding the material.” Helen Tan
- “Fantastic. I found it much easier to get myself to learn at home and practice in class rather than the other way around.” Sam Boyea
- “I honestly did not really enjoy it because if felt like the lectures were less personal and not directed a me. However, I did like the convenience of rewinding parts I did not understand multiple times.” Erika Tsuchiya
- “I think that Flipping Physics allowed me to be much more efficient with the time I put into this class out of school. It also made it easier for me personally to learn the material and do well in the class.” John Stroud
- “I really enjoyed it. It provided a lot of extra time in class and the lectures online were great for referencing back.” Claire Goolsby
- “I believe the Flipping Physics has been a major improvement to the class. With the extra time, in class activities such as labs feel more about learning and understanding and do not apply too much pressure over rushing to say complete a lab.” Kevin Hwang
- “I did not like Flipped Physics because I was not as focused or in the “physics zone” as much as I had been during lectures in class.” Savanna Cureton (When I message Savanna to ask if I could include her evaluation response, this is what she wrote: "Absolutely! If I can make a follow up comment, though, I have watched some of your newer videos and they are completely awesome! I used some for my classes and they helped so much.")
