History Teachers Featured on Flipped Learning Podcast

First, if you have not heard of the Flipped Learning Podcast, I highly recommend checking it out.  Troy Cockrum does an excellent job hosting this weekly show that features educators from around the nation.  Joan Brown has also joined the program to provide news related to the flipped learning community and join in the discussion.  It is a great way to learn about various adaptations of flipped learning and can also help you connect with other educators and grow your PLN.

Fortunately for us social studies educators out there, three recent episodes have featured high school history teachers.  I was interviewed for episode #34 and had a great conversation with Troy and Joan about flipped learning, democratic education, explore-flip-apply, and more. They are all linked below for those interested in listening.

Flipped History Hangout 3/13/13

On Wednesday night five of us met for another great conversation about flipped learning in social studies.   The major topics of the night including: managing the class, structuring units, flipped-mastery, explore-flip-apply in social studies, and more.   Unfortunately the recording ended abruptly with about 15 minutes left in our conversation due to technical difficulties (thanks Karl).  There is still about 40 min. or so archived and embedded below for those interested.
