The term Flipped Classroom has been a buzz word in education circles for a few years.
The potential for improving classroom practice and engagement is partly why there are many innovative teachers adopting these methods into their classroom practice.
See the links to resources to support your exploration.There are many examples of this being done successfully (with documentation of these journeys).

21stedtech has an excellent collection of resources (research and practical examples).
Additionally, an infographic (for those who learn visually) explains the concept and impact succinctly. The statistics on improved student learning are mind blowing.
If you would like to try this with your class please let me know. Happy to support.
Using a wallwisher is a great way to quickly gather feedback and ideas.
This wallwisher was created from a conference (ACEC2012) using twitter. A nice addition to wallwisher is a QR code is generated for the wall. Another simple use of QR codes.
Digital Learning Day is coming soon- 6th February 2013.
See the Digital learning facebook page.
Digital learning is also known as e-learning. One example of e-learning is flipped classrooms. This can take a variety of formats. Please ask me if you would like support with this.
Currently, I am a participant in a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) E-Learning and Digital Culture. It is a coursera course – online courses run by various universities around the world (and it is free!).
This is the twitter feed.
