I think that sadly too many teachers are flipping the classroom because it is cool - not because they feel it can help them. What is good about the hype is that I do think we have more permission (and a cover story) to try flip experiments in our classrooms - and that flexibility is nice. But the notion that all cool teachers are flipping and so should you is just another teaching bandwagon that is chatted about endlessly by non-teachers, experts, and the press. Most wise and experienced teachers just lean back and say "Interesting. I might try that a bit here and there and see how it goes". Those who rush in because they read about it in an airline magazine will learn that non-teaching expert opinions work better on the keynote circuit than in the classroom. Everything in moderation.
