This interview taken from... http://teachinglearningleadingk12.pod... Hosted by Steve Miletto (Executive Director of Heart of Georgia RESA) Dr. McCammon is a former public high school teacher in North Raleigh, NC where he taught AP Econ and civics. He earned his PhD from NC State University in Curriculum Development. Many people might have come in contact with him through YouTube and his videos on Flipping the Classroom or through his very cool original songs about each of the states that he is currently producing and you can also see on YouTube. What an amazingly, talented educator! The interview was conducted after he worked with teachers on creating activities to differentiate instruction and to engage the kids! He had the teachers involved and having fun while learning how to use his instructional practices. I think all were pleased, engaged, and ready to go try his ideas in their classes! As we continue our conversation, Lodge states that the purpose of Flipping the Classroom is to make the teacher more efficient. The teacher creates short film clips to introduce or continue the lecture and thus, makes more class time for hands-on activities. Listen to his awesome thoughts about there being an intersection between challenge and engagement... he shares his ideas on engaging the students who don't want to be in school at the same time as the teacher has to recognize their level for challenge... We couldn't have completed our talk without spending some time with his ideas about music and the classroom... Lodge is an amazing musician and I think that you will totally enjoy hearing him express his ideas about.. "My passion is to bring the power of music right into the classroom, allowing (the kids) to be artists, again."
