Jon co-founded the Flipped Learning Network™, a non-profit organization which provides resources and research about flipped learning.
Flipped learning requires a radical redefinition of the role of the teacher, the student and the best use of time between them.
Successful migration to the flipped Learning model requires in investment of time. This means support from school administrators and school leaders is pivotal.
In the end, successful flipped learning comes down to fostering more productive relationships between students and teachers and keeping the process simple.
Successful implementation of Flipped Learning requires a mastery of the pedagogy and best practices of the flipped classroom.
Technology is central to Flipped Learning. Identifying the right technology, the right technology providers and securing the necessary technical training are vital.
Around the globe, increasing numbers of teachers and school leaders are flipping their classes. Our goal is to help spread flipped learning’s best thinking, best practices, best technologies worldwide.
In 2012, the Indian School of Business (ISB) with its main campus in Hyderabad, India, introduced the flipped classroom to teach students in its flagship post-graduate management program a course on entrepreneurial decision-making. Arun Pereira, executive director of the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Case Development at ISB, used the methodology to teach a class of 70 students from the postgraduate program and won the school’s Best Professor award. The experiment was such a success that Economic Times reports ISB plans to expand the use of this active learning methodology.
There is a real “buzz” here with teachers talking about possibilities for flipping content, lessons and classes.The conversation around pedagogy and student engagement was really important and we are so excited about all of the tools that you showed us as we were able to implement them in our classes straight away.We have even flipped our professional learning sessions for staff!
When prof. Bergmann participated in two online seminars for Brazilian educators hosted by Aquifolium, hundreds of teachers were deeply challenged to change the way they work in order to give the best practical answer to his question: “what is the best use you can give for the face‐to‐face time with your students?”. And even today this question echoes and provokes reflection and change.
Keilir – the youngest school in Iceland – came to work closely with Jon Bergmann. That was our fortune. With his encouragement we decided to flip the school. And we are never going back. Two international conferences and Jon´s support have brought around one third of Icelandic teachers to our school in order to learn about he Flipped Learning. So Jon has had strong impact here in Iceland and the world of education.
The strategy of flipping your classroom that I learned from Jon Bergmann has been, without exception, the single, most powerful overnight transformation in education I have ever seen in my 30+ years as a teacher. It has allowed me to leverage technology and personalize learning for my students in such an incredible way, that I cannot wait to get to school each day.
