I have been talking more and more recently about the concept of flip teaching. Its one of the most exciting developments have come across in quite a while and I am convinced it is going to transform traditional education.

I am interested in education and its effectiveness but what really interests me is that the philosophy behind flip teaching is the same as my Knowledge Cafes and the work at the ING Bank Academy.

We don't learn well from being lectured at but we do learn well from engaging conversations.

I am also starting to experiment with Storify. Here is a story on the Flip Classroom created by Jennifer Fenton.
