It all started with the video above were Salman Khan advocates using video to help re-invent the classroom.  Ivan Beeckman’s blog provided the background to the concepts of reverse learning.  I was sent a link to another educational video resource point called brightstorm by a colleague.  This all leads to me start following the comments made which led to a range of further viewpoints:

  1. Dereck Muller, Physics educator and science blogger, suggested one of the most important features that should not be overlooked is overcoming a students already present misconceptions.
  2. The Action-Reaction blog thought the Khan Acadamy is an indictment of education.
  3. Cybraryman advocates flipped classrooms
  4. Mr. Bennet discusses how a flipped classroom work for him

The title of this posting indicates that I think some of the ideas of reverse learning could be successfully integrated into my own teaching.  I hope this blog can help people follow my own reverse learning adventure.
