The Flipped Classroom Workshop in a Book
by Kelly Walsh
Since 2011, Kelly Walsh has been raising awareness of flipped instruction tools and techniques, and introducing the concept to educators across the world, through articles on his popular blog and website EmergingEdTech.com. In presentations at conferences and schools across the U.S., and through online workshops, Walsh has helped many teachers make the transition to flipped instruction. With the Flipped Classroom Workshop in a Book, Walsh makes it easy for educators to discover how the flip works and how teachers have been using it in their classrooms, while they ease into flipped instruction at their own pace.

Eight exercises walk the reader through the development of their own personalized approach for integrating flipped instruction in their classrooms. The exercises are supplemented by web pages where readers can share their insights, questions, and ideas.

Best Practices for Teaching with Emerging Technologies
by Michelle Pacansky-Brock
Pacansky-Brock has written an excellent guide to bringing the teaching paradigm into the current century, in a way that embraces the perspective of students (of all ages) and has been proved effective time and time again.
I could hardly envision a better introduction to using emerging technologies in the classroom in a single self-contained resource. While this book recounts a personal journey, it also very well organized, and provides structured guidance. These experienced insights can help guide any educator through the maze of Internet tools, to discover many ways in which they can facilitate a fundamental shift in student engagement and learning.

Sal Khan’s One World Schoolhouse – Powerful Ideas Persuasively Expressed
This book is a must-read for educators everywhere.

There are various themes that arise repeatedly in the book, and many are spoken to with a straightforward eloquence. In this article, I share some of the often simple yet uniformly powerful doctrines offered and verbally illustrated in Parts 1 to 3 of the book …
