A few months back, I got into a passionate conversation with a person who believes that flipping the classroom is our only hope for saving schools.

His arguments rubbed me the wrong way, though, because he believed that kids were inherently motivated by the technology behind flipping the classroom.  “When we deliver content in a digital format, we capture the attention of digitally driven kids,” he said.  “They literally eat this stuff up.  We’re speaking their language when we use YouTube for school purposes.”


I was thinking about our conversation last night and decided to whip up a few slides.  Looking forward to hearing what you think of them:
