The traditional flipped learning approach is for teachers to create videos of their presentations, and students to watch these in advance of a lesson. Students are therefore able to watch them at their own pace, and rewind, if necessary, etc.
A possible disadvantage of this approach is that students can get away with being passive learners. For maximum benefit, students need to be actively involved in the learning process. This is why I have developed the 'core tasks' on this site.
Most core tasks contain a step by step development of ideas, which most students should be able to cope with, without much resort to additional resources. However, they should be encouraged to look at the selected resources to deepen their understanding. There are plenty of quality resources (video, text, simulation) online, some of which I have provided links to. Please feed back to me if you know of other, quality links.
Often core tasks have links embedded in them. I have been particularly keen to link to simulations (e.g. PhET Colorado, Walter Fendt applets) where I can, so that students can learn through guided exploration.
