  12. Possible spots to find useful video and resources. There are lots of others, the key is to taking time to explore and see what works for you. Pick one spot and give yourself time to explore, if after a couple honest tries, you can't find something that works for you, move on. These are good options and places to start:
  13. Create your own videos for flipped classrooms....there are so many to choose from, but these are a couple I have tried!
  14. Creating screencasts can be important for collecting and sharing resources in flipped classrooms. The following are good screencast tools to explore as indicated below. If using an iPad, simply snapshot the screen and in Windows, the snipping tool is very useful.
  15. Starting this process can be overwhelming. Give yourself time to play around with the technology and slowly implement it into your teaching. The process can be slow but it will pay off.
