Flipped Church: "Networked" Book Discussion

When I started my DMiss at Fuller, Ryan Bolger introduced me to the concept of the "flipped" classroom.  Here is a helpful graphic from www.knewton.com that describes how the "flipped" classroom is different than a traditional one.

In the traditional model, lecture is given in class and homework is taken home. In the "flipped" model, the lecture is viewed at home and homework is done together in class.  This would not have been possible even a few years ago but the prevalence of social media networks and connected devices allows this to be a reality.

The goal for this space is to use the "flipped" model as a basis for a book discussion.  The "lecture" will the individual reading of the book "Networked: The New Social Operating System" and the "classroom" will be this discussion forum.  We will use the 3 different sections of the book as the "chapters" for our discussion.

Looking forward to interacting and learning together.
