This week Ken chats with Crystal Kirch about her experiences with flipped classroom. Crystal is a #flipclass pioneer and an active board member for the Flipped Learning Network.
Crystal discusses reflective blogging, her early experiences with flipped classroom, the WSQ method and more. Be sure to look for Crystal’s book which was released last year. I also apologize for confusing this book edited by Jason Bretzmann with the book by Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams which Crystal did contribute a chapter to.

Quote from Crystal during the podcast.
You are never going to have 100 percent of students on board when you are doing something different and when you are doing something that I think challenges them a little bit out of their comfort zone. it is not an environment where students can be passive consumers of knowledge, they are really forced to engage at a more deeper and active level.
