POI013 Myth #8 “I understand what flipped learning is”

"I know what flip is" As the cycles of education ideas and vocabulary wax and wane it is easy to confuse familiarity with an education term with understanding.of that methodology. Flipped learning has now been in education circles long enough that most have heard the term. Many have heard the term often enough they feel they have reached a thorough understanding. As a flipped educator for nearly seven years I still feel I have more areas to understand and explore. Join us for this audioblog...


Points Of Interest 012 Myth 7 Part 2 "Best for ALL Students"

Okay so if flipped learning can be adapted to students on the two tails or extremes of the normal curve, and if flipped learning is malleable and effective enough to be customized to various student groups, is there anyone for which flipped learning does not work best? I think that answer has a definitive yes. In this episode we talk about the "Just tell me how to do it" student and the troubled relationship they have with flipped learning.

This audioblog is the companion piece to the original blog at I discuss the role and relationship of research and flipped learning to the idea of the digital native. Join us.


Points Of Interest 010 Myth #4 Homework At Home

The basis of flipped learning myth #4 is the second half of the definition of flipped as “videos at home/ homework at school” In the previous post for Myth #3 we discussed the limitations of defining flipped learning as “videos at home”, and the false limitations it places on students and teachers. Now let’s take a look at the second half of that incomplete definition.


Points Of Interest 009 Myth #3 Instruction at Home

The basis of flipped learning myth #3 can be found in the limited definition of flipped learning as “videos at home / homework at school”. We discuss how this definition is a viral yet limited view of flipped learning. check out the original blog at


Points Of Interest 008 Myth #2 Flipping is Easy

The second misconception about flipped learning is “flipped learning is easy for the teacher”. There is a tempting element of flipped learning that if the students are watching videos, and the students are doing homework, then the teacher is free to not have to do those things. That is only somewhat true. Join me as we talk about the road to flipping. check out the original blog at


Points Of Interest 007 Flip Myth #1

I hope to cover just a couple myths about flipping in the next few blogs. The first two have to be grouped together because they are opposite sides of the same coin and both address the real and perceived effort required to flip a class. Myth number one: “It it's really hard to flip a classroom” Join me here or at


Points Of Interest 006 - Myth # 5 Revisited

Previously I attempted to debunk flipped learning myth number five that states “no tech is needed to flip”. I still believe that for flipped learning in the modern classroom this is a true statement; however, I must admit there are those with reasonable opinions and reasonable perspectives that vary in the technology necessary. Join me as we look at some of the work of Dr. Robert Talbert and technology beyond video. Source: Cited:...

POI 002 Myth # 6 - “Flipped learning results in overuse of technology”

Myth number 6 is “flipped learning results in overuse of technology”. Myth number 5 was “no tech is needed for flipping”. Like most teaching and learning myths, this myth has a flip side of the coin as well and that leads us to myth #6 and the overuse of technology. Listen to this blog as read by the author.


Points Of Interest 001 - Myth #5 Flipped Learning & Mickey Mouse

This episode addresses a common myth about flipped learning that no technology or video is required. I use Mickey Mouse as an example of the necessity to join sight and sound with text to realize the full potential of flipped learning. Join me as we talk history and education.
