I just spoke with Jon Bergmann about TEDed and how I have been using it in my flipped classroom. I was sharing it as this great resource that he would want to check out. He responded by agreeing that it is a great tool that he helped to create. LOL Glad to know that I am using tools that are of high quality!

This was fun. I only wish we had more time to dive deeper. I really enjoyed chatting with +Daniel Rezac +James Sanders and +Jonathan Bergmann and hope the conversation continues. Given that I have put Mr. Khan's video under scrutiny, I ask that anyone who views this video does the same to me.

Keep me honest, accountable, and help me improve my craft.
 
Exciting! On Keynote Theater: we've got the original Flipped Classroom gurus +Jonathan Bergmann and +Aaron Sams PLUS YouTube EDUs (and EdReach contributor) +James Sanders deconstructing +salman khan 's TED Talk!

Nice #flipclass article in Wired.
 
A fantastic article done on the #flipclass by Wired Magazine came out today. If you've never heard of it, this is a good place to start.

On the list of experts needed are: pharmacist, environmental engineer, architect, criminal psychologist, Barack Obama, physical therapist, someone who works for Google or Apple, TV reporter, someone in international relations (UN), astronaut, surgeon, public relations, or family therapist. Anyone willing to help my students?

Insightful
 
While there is no relation between us, he embodies the BrokenAirplane philosophy.

I love the statement "The F is the new A". I would say that I can't guarantee you that our failing students will be tomorrows innovators (they certainly could be) the students getting A's in our system are much less likely to be as we just aren't set up to nurture these attributes. "A" students can be brilliant and creative, but they might just as likely be able to play the game.
