With the increasing spread of the Flipped Classroom model, where should you turn to learn more about how to implement this model? Below are Five Great Resources to Flip Your Class:. I know this list is not complete, but it should give you a place to start.
Of course, I am biased on this resource. Aaron and I wrote it for teachers to get started with the Flipped Classroom
Flipping 2.0: Practical Strategies for Flipping Your Class, Bertzman, et. al 2013 This is a group of flipped class teachers who have added greatly to the Flipped Class community. I highly recommend it.
One reason that the flipped classroom, and more specifically, flipped learning are growing, is because groups of educators are working together to reflect and improve on the model.
Flippedclassroom.org: Join close to 15,000 educators having conversations about flipped learning. There is a group for every conceivable type of educator. We have groups for primary teachers, math teachers, college professors, english teachers and administrators, just to name a few. If the group you are looking for isn’t there, start it.
Flippedlearning.org: The nonprofit organization Aaron Sams and I started in 2012 to help teach educators how to flip their classes.
#flipclass chat on Twitter. One of the most dynamic groups of educators on twitter is the #flipclass chat group. Follow the hashtag #flipclass and learn from an amazing community of educators. And every Monday night from 8pm-9pm Eastern time join in on a moderated chat time.
There are many excellent blogs about the flipped classroom. Here are a few that I read on a regular basis.
Flipped Learning Journal: A great group of flipped class educators who are working together to flip. The call this Co-Flip. The idea is to find other teachers to flip with who may be in a different state. They have excellent blog posts and topics.

Flipping with Kirch: Crystal Kirch is one of the most reflective educators I know. Very thoughtful about her practice. She is a high school math teacher in California.

You want to learn more and want some sort of official “class” to take. Though I realize that there are lots of trainings to choose from, I am only going to list the two that I have been a part of:
Foundations of Flipped Learning: The Flipped Learning Network, Pearson, Aaron and I worked together to develop this course. You can find out more information by clicking HERE. Note: this is only set up for a school or district to take the course, not individual teachers.

We have had webinars about how to flip an English class, How to Flip Social Studies, Math, Science, etc. We are about to launch a series on common core standards and flipped learning.
