Every week at 5pm Pacific and 8pm Eastern (US time zones), we get together for a chat on Twitter using the #flipclass hashtag, please feel free to join us or just watch (get your toes wet) and go through your own crawl/walk/run stages at your own pace (shoutout to @NancyWhite for the crawl/walk/run).
This week’s topic:
Tonight, we're writing about how we find/build community outside of our own school sites. This could be about #flipcon15, but dsnt have 2be

Obviously, Twitter and #flipclass is important to me. I will go further afield and suggest that people try other options like:
- Facebook groups. There are many, you can find the Flipped Learning Latin America group that I started here)
- Google Plus. You may laugh, but there are some amazing communities in Google Plus, I use this for other communities but there must be something for you in #flipclass or your area of interest
- Blogs. There are so many to choose from. Once you subscribe to some you will get ideas for your own blog posts. I really should curate the list that I follow but for now just follow the folks here doing #FLASHBLOG posts for #flipclass
- Podcasts. I listen to various podcasts in the education field as well as my other interests (hockey, photography, news, health and more). Troy Cockrum and Joan Brown have been recording the Flipped Learning Remixed (was Flipped Learning Podcast) for 125 episodes of which I have listened to every single one.
- Conferences like FlipCon. I attended FlipCon14 and FlipCon15 in person and I can’t begin to explain the impact that has had on my pedagogy. I have so many friends that I can’t imagine not talking to over Twitter/Facebook/Voxer that I know through that conference.
What Did I Miss?
What are your suggestions to this list? Is there something I missed?
