The notion behind this website is to turn learning upside down.
It is the personal blog/website of Jon Bergmann. Jon is a teacher, educational coach, and writer who has had the privilege of helping educators around the world reconsider what education can look like.
He, along with Aaron Sams, are considered two of the pioneers in the Flipped Class Movement. They co-wrote the book on the Flipped Classroom. It will be available from ISTE Press and ASCD in June of 2012. They also have a popular YouTube channel which contains the videos they have used with their students in the flipped classroom. The videos are mostly Chemisty, Astronomy, and Space Science videos.
Please enjoy the resources here on this website.
Jon believes educators should ask one guiding question: What is best for my students in my classroom? To the best of his abilities he has done this in his twenty-four years as a high school science teacher. He received the Presidential Award for Excellence for Math and Science Teaching in 2002 and was named Semi-Finalist for Colorado Teacher of the Year in 2010. He serves on the advisory board for TED-Education
He is currently the Lead Technology Facilitator for the Joseph Sears School in Kenilworth, Illinois. He is the father of three teenagers and is happily married to the love of his life.
