Flipped-Mastery Article Series

I have been asked quite a bit recently about my experiences designing and implementing Flipped-Mastery, so I thought it would make sense to compile some of my articles over the past year into one post.  Below you will find six articles that describe how I both developed our Flipped-Mastery units as well as techniques for managing mastery learning in a "traditional" school setting.

The Meet Education Project

Last month, I had the opportunity to engage in a great conversation with Nick DiNardo on a recent episode of his Meet Education Project podcast.  We discussed many topics including gamification, Flipped Learning, mastery-based instruction and the future of education.

For those interested in our conversation, the podcast is embedded below, posted on Nick's website, and available on  iTunes.  I strongly recommend adding Nick's show to your podcast lineup.  He has had awesome guests in the past and has many more queued up for 2014!  I hope you enjoy the episode, and as always, if you have any comments or questions do not hesitate to comment below or contact me directly to discuss.
