Geckos Hate Water So Much It Explodes Off Them: 
Look, I don't like rain as much as the next person. I'm sure my mom wasn't a big fan either, and the rest of my ancestors probably weren't wild about water falling from the sky. But nowhere along the line did any of them develop skin that forces water droplets to explosively launch off.

Apparently, your lecture isn't any less boring on YouTube...new research finds "flipping" the classroom has no impact on student learning, but rather the active learning is what counts.

The moral of this #edtech story? If you say, "flip the classroom," then I say "just stop lecturing."

(Thanks to Rogers for sharing this article!)

Couldn't agree more - if all you do is switch lecture to outside of class via video and move rote solving, normal "homework" to in-class, it's not any better.  In-class time needs to change!  A colleague & I are presenting at MACUL on this exact topic. What are different things to do in-class to dig deeper, engage learners, etc. Thanks +Rachelle Wynkoop for the shout out!

Story
Tagline
Educator. Leader. Learner.
Introduction
Gary is an award-winning educator and teacher leader for his classroom innovations in science teaching and instructional technology. He is the 2013-14 Michigan Teacher of the Year and a student in the Galileo Teacher Leadership Academy

Through his innovative efforts in the classroom, Gary has successfully brought science to life for many high school students and inspired the classrooms of countless others. He runs a nearly paperless ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) science classroom, utilizes project-based learning methods, and incorporates standards-based grading with his students. 

His efforts in the classroom have gained the notice of individuals and organizations in the field of education that have featured and consulted with Gary for his expertise in education. Though he is a dynamic high school science teacher, Gary is perhaps best regarded for his work on standards-based grading and BYOD classroom methods. 

Gary is a past winner of the Toyota Tapestry Award, was named the 2012 Michigan Teacher of Promise by the Michigan Science Teachers Association, and a 2013 REMC-MI Connected Educator. He holds a non-voting seat on the State Board of Education, where he represents 100,000+ Michigan educators.
