Come and Join Other Educators as we Create a Plan to Flip Our Classrooms (or Improve on Flipped Teaching and Learning We’ve Been Doing)!
The workshop is 4 weeks long, done on line, at your convenience (we will have one scheduled video chat early on to get to know each other, but the rest of the work is done on your schedule!). Hundreds of teachers, technologist, admins, and other professional trainers have taken this affordable, interactive workshop over the last few years! Here’s what many have had to say about it.
A sampling of feedback from previous workshops:
– “I just wanted to say thank you for this class. I learned more about the how and whys of flipping the classroom and I was able to reflect on what I already know and put in a written format. I liked reading the posts of other class members as well. They gave some great ideas and it was nice to have some of my questions/concerns brought up by others. This class is also ‘rubbing off’ on a couple of my colleagues as well. They are not creating their own content, but they are leveraging already created content and their current website to offer students more resources! This has occurred since my conversations about this class started!”
– “The book was phenomenal! At this point I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed this course and have already recommended it to others and plan to continue. Thank you for a job well done!
– “My head is spinning with all of the great ideas that I gained from this workshop — and especially from our discussions. I am going to try to get on the agenda for an upcoming all-school meeting to share some of the ideas from this workshop. I am even leaning toward flipping my “new prep” classes if I can feel comfortable with staying ahead of the students in content creation. Our classes are structured to be two hours of lecture and two hours of lab per week. That translates into an hour of lecture followed by an hour of lab two days a week. By flipping my classes, I feel that the students who now struggle with homework will excel due to the reality that the homework they are assigned is laying the groundwork for what they do in class. Now, I’m just looking for a sure way to get and keep them motivated to access the flipped content for their homework. But, I think that problem might just take care of itself — we’ll see!”
– “I definitely look forward to experimenting with the flipped classroom. I’ve been working on screencasts using iPad apps such as educreations and explain everything. I think they are easy tools to use and interested in seeing how the students take to it. I’m also looking Into experimenting with TedEd also. Having an archive of lessons will prove beneficial. Students will be able to access lessons for review and if they want to go ahead. All in all, I envision this will free up more time for students to practice what they are learning. Whether its playing review games, answering practice problems, or even making their own screencasts, I think the learning process will be a positive one for the students.”
