A "Flipped Classroom" presentation that you probably won't watch: a) it's 50 minutes long, (b) the presenter does not look like Brad Pitt and c) it's a powerpoint. But you will benefit from looking at the slides. d) The fellow does NOT talk about the power of Learning Styles.

B. Wilie put together a dozen slides that capture the spirit of the workshop that I described in this blog earlier today (look at the neighboring blog post...).

The title says everything:

Flipping is not about videos.
Flipping is about putting the student in the center
of the process of instruction.
