As a teacher from the UK, I am continuously trying to improve my relationships with pupils to allow pupils to learn how to learn. I have recently started to look at the flipped model of learning and how this has been implemented in other teachers classrooms. This book is an EXCELLENT starting point for any teacher who is thinking about using the model.

The main part of the book that got me really thinking about how my pupils could progress using this model was the flipped mastery chapters. I had some knowledge of the 'flip' idea - yet this really opened my mind to the prospect of personalised learning and allowing all pupils to achive and succeed - at their own pace! No more moving on when half of the pupils in front of you have no idea what you have been going on about and the other half wished you had moved on weeks ago.

As a teacher in England, I have been busy preparing my videos for the new term (starting September 2012) and I have even started a blog to enable me to keep a track of how it goes. For the first time in years I am actually looking forwards to the start of a new year - OFSTED due in October, I wonder what they will say??

Thanks Jonathan and Aaron for producing a book that - I'm sure - takes a worldwide (and not just an American view) on 'What is best for the kids' - and giving me the impetus to go and do it!!

(P.S. I should really have produced a video review - I may do in the future!!)

I bought this book as i was undertaking a research project involving flipping my classroom for my PGCE qualification. While it does offer much discussion of the flipped classroom, it doesn't really offer up much in terms of practical advice. Additionally the actual benefits for learners, in terms of results, that Bergman and Sams results do not work out as positive as one might think. It really well written and, for a teaching book, fun to read with warmth and humour. Definitely worth checking out.

I have been trying to work out how to engage my students in higher order thinking skills for for longer in lessons for some time. I came across the flipped classroom and Peer Instruction a while ago but was not sure how it worked. This book concisely puts the pieces of the jigsaw in place. It will not turn you into a flipped jedi immediately but give you the start point and foundations. Recommend this book for practitoners wishing to challenge their students more.

This is not the book to buy if you are looking for tips for teachers (look to youtube or other books for this). If you want a solid foundation in the philosophy of flipped learning then this is the book to buy.

This is a short book (112 pages) but does exactly what it sets out to do. There is a clear explanation of what flipped learning is, its advantages and the nitty-gritty of how to do it. There is a strong sense of "been there, done that" from the authors. Every teacher should give this approach a trial run at least. It is very compatible with William Glasser's Quality School approach and would probably benefit from treating grades lower than a "B" as "not ready yet". Great book!

I am a primary-trained AST/Lead practitioner in teaching & Learning and highly recommend this book. It really makes you think about the time you 'need' to spend talking/instructing to the class in actual 'class time'. This completely fits in with the current thinking from Ofsted of too much teacher talk.

I strongly suggest you read this book, it will change your practice.

I am an ICT teacher who struggles with classes that I only see once a week for 50 minutes. I have just started to apply the flip teaching methodology to these classes and have instantly seen a change in pupil attitudes and in the quality of the learning in my classroom. This book is easy to read, structured logically and inspirational without being daunting. READ IT NOW.

Easy to read and clear and honest. There could be more data on summative results before and after. They compare their first year's results against the previous results from a different teacher. But what about the second year? As it happens, flipped learning makes so much intuitive sense to me, that I can only imagine much improved results.

I really enjoyed this book and found it very useful. It was very easy to read and as the authors suggest, read it quickly over one weekend to get the most out of it. It was practical and hands on with loads of tips for changing how you teach and flipping your classroom.

Read in a weekend between family and marking! Started to implement on Monday morning - still changing the culture slowly in school - but working towards more independent and motivated pupils!
