Like you, I am curious to see how this trend/fad/practice looks in 2-5 years.

Yes, the schools with urban, low socio-economic populations are definitely at a disadvantage when it comes to flipping. It requires a lot more patience and creativity. Check out the #flipclass hashtag for ideas or any of the links I provided in my post.

Mary Beth, I wrote a couple of ebooks for you and your readers, and stashed them in an open Dropbox folder for anyone to download. They talk about Flipping, online learning, and other 21st Century trends http://bit.ly/hugeteachergiveaway Please let me know what you think!

I think you hit the nail on the head when you said "this would have to be a school wide project." Rural teachers would need a lot more support than their suburban peers to make this work, for sure.

for my thesis this fall. I teach three sections of advanced algebra and will use a flipped approach for my second unit with one of the classes. I can't wait to see what comes out of it. Thanks for writing a balanced report on the pros and cons. I will use the info for planning.

Flipping in Rural Areas

I have thought about how the Flipped classroom could be made effective in rural areas where all students do not have Internet access at home. Suppose a school chose the content area where achievement is lowest or gaps are greater, usually mathematics. Additional time could be built into the schedule for students to view the videos at school, freeing up regular class time for homework, projects, individual or small group teacher assistance, etc. The videos could be prepared by the regular teacher if desired. This is relatively easy for any classroom with SMART technology, and I am sure with many other interactive whiteboards. Flipping would also make acceleration very viable. Of course this would have to be a school wide project to be successful. I would love to hear other's thoughts on my idea.

Thank-you for your comprehensive overview of flipped classrooms. As a high school teacher I have often thought that if I could get my students access to my explicit instruction that it would have huge benefits in my class. I have a difficult time getting my students to read their text books but I believe that if they could have the lesson on-line or in video format to preview before class I could spend more valuable time on student centered lessons. It would be difficult to get past the access challenge since I teach at an urban low socio-economic school.

You aren't ready to flip!
