More ideas for flipping faculty meetings

Not sure if you’ve seen them or not, but commenters on my recent bit about flipping faculty meetings have been sharing a TON of super useful resources.

Here are three that are definitely worth your time if this is a topic that floats your professional boat:

Flipping – It’s Not Just for the Classroom

In an example of the “great minds think alike” theory, I stumbled across this great bit by my good friend Steven Anderson (@web20classroom) the day after my original faculty flip post went live!

In it, Steven makes the case for flipping professional development and outlines three different tools that interested principals might want to explore.

A New Way to Teach with Video from Ted Ed

Last week, a sixth grade science colleague and I were talking about doing a bit of flipping in our classrooms next year.  Our worry was finding a way to hold kids accountable for actually watching the video and interacting with the content.

That’s why this article shared by Kevin Hodgson (@dogtrax) is so timely and useful.  It introduces a new Ted tool that allows you to create short reflection questions around any video on their site OR posted on YouTube.

Obviously, the same tool can be used to guide the thinking of teachers before a flipped faculty meeting too.

Flipped Professional Development

Perhaps one of the most intriguing shares was the FlippedPD.org website, which is a project maintained by Kristen Daniels (@kadaniels).

Turns out that Kristen — who works as a technology integration specialist for the Stillwater Public Schools — has been implementing a flipped model for district professional development for awhile.

This is her site — which includes some solid content around the hows and the whys of flipped PD.

Long story short: This is doable — and there are tons of resources out there to help you get started if you’re interested in taking the plunge.
