Flipped Learning Mastery to Reach Every Student (Even Remotely!) with Jon Bergmann
May 2, 2020
Jon Bermann on the Education Evolution Podcast with Maureen O'Shaughnessy

“Education is so much more about that human element, that reaching every student piece, than it is about [what I’m teaching this week].” – Jon Bergmann

This statement is the epitome of Jon Bergman and the way he educates his students. It’s his life’s mission to ensure every student’s needs are met–both in his classroom and in every classroom. His drive to pioneer Flipped Learning classes with expected mastery is why his voice and ideas are so vital in the world of teaching and learning.

During our interview with Jon, we talk about how education has changed over the years–and why it’s still not where our kids need it. We discuss the tragedy with which the industrial revolution impacted modern education and why we’re still doing the wrong things at the wrong times for our students.

Jon discusses what a flipped classroom really looks like (it’s not what you think) and how to really connect with students, even when you’re not face-to-face with them.

After the interview, I give some insight into why students don’t really care about what we’re teaching them until they know that we care about them and I talk about my hope for the impact COVID-19 might have on how education evolves in the future.
