Creating Content Artifacts

A lot of energy was wasted on arguing for and against the "flipped" model and whether or not it was a sound educational practice.  I'm not of the mindset that education can be "flixed" through some yet-to-be-discovered educational model.  I am, however, a fan of creating public resources that can be used by students and other teachers.  

Teachers are creators and have something to share.  With that, I would encourage educators to create and share their lessons and resources.  With tools for discovering, curating and sharing resources continuing to improve, there has never been a better time to jump into the creators pool.  An easy way to start is by crafting simple videos of the classroom lessons.  Videos can be created in the moment or prepared beforehand.  By capturing lessons in video format students will have something to refer to and other teachers will have examples to turn to when looking for inspiration for their own lessons.
