Flipped Learning Pioneer John Bergmann on Flipping Your Class

Missed #FutureSchools conference? We’ve got you covered!

We were fortunate to have coffee with John Bergmann a keynote speaker at #Future Schools, who is one of the pioneers of the Flipped Class Movement and co-author of the book Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day”.  John received the Presidential Award for Excellence for Math and Science Teaching in 2002, was named Semi-Finalist for Colorado Teacher of the Year in 2010 and serves on the Advisory Board of TED Education!

We and a number of people we spoke to were inspired by John and his perspective on what classrooms should look like.

Bergmann believes educators should ask one guiding question:

What is best for my students in my classroom?

Watch John in action in this short video on how John has answered this question through the act of Flipping Your Classroom!

“The best tool to flip learning, see student progress & personalize for individual needs!”

Over the last 6 months we’ve been working with the talented and committed teaching team at Mt Eliza Secondary College and Real Time Learning (who are doing amazing work with Westpac and Senior Techies) and we recently chatted to teacher (and Real Time Learning leader) Luke Kerr about his experiences as a teacher using myEd.

Here’s what Luke had to say!

How have you been using myEd at Mt Eliza and Real Time Learning?

We’ve been using it to flip our learning for our students – and it’s the first product we’ve used to flip our classrooms where we’re actually able to see exactly where each of our students are at and where they are up to which is great!

It’s allowing us to do this in a very easy way, and put a variety of different resources in front of our students – youtube videos, PDFs, quizzes and questions – anything you want to share with your students and then be able to track their progress of exactly where they are up to!
