The flipped classroom has been a common theme here at Daily Edventures, and it seems everywhere we turn, educators are experimenting with the idea. In some cases, they create their own videos; in others, they’re using resources like Khan Academy to expose students to content outside the classroom so they can do more hands-on work during class time. In fact, Sal Khan mentioned the flipped classroom as a trend to watch when we talked earlier this year.
One of the pioneers of the flipped classroom concept, Daily Edventures alum Jonathan Bergmann, dedicates much of his time – inside and outside the classroom – to evangelizing the idea. But Bergmann knows that there is much more to successful teaching.
Today, I’m pleased to share a video blog created by Bergmann on the art of teaching, where relationship, curiosity and content come together. Bergmann notes that, of these three components, content tends to play a disproportionately large role, and he’s hoping that imbalance changes. I couldn’t agree more.
