Build Your Website
One of the first things you will need to decide is where you will be housing your videos, etc. for your online classroom. I prefer Weebly. It's free, easy to use, and does not require an access code as does Edmodo or Schoology. You can also begin using your website to share information to students and parents in your traditional classroom before you've even begun to flip. Take some time this week to sign up for Weebly and get your online classroom started. If you'd like to see an example you can visit my personal online classroom at www.mrslight.weebly.com.
Get connected with other educators interested in and actually doing Flipped Classroom by joining Twitter here. Every Monday at 8pm EST there is a flip class chat. Just follow the hashtag #flipclass. At first you will find yourself just trying to follow the fast paced nature of the chat. That's totally fine at first. But I encourage to join in the conversation after you get a feel for how the chats run. You can ask questions and get more information on how to flip your class.
