BURNSVILLE, MINN (June 12, 2013) – Mackin Educational Resources is pleased to sponsor the upcoming FlipCon13 national flipped learning conference at Stillwater Area High School in Stillwater, Minnesota. Hosted by the Flipped Learning Network, FlipCon13 promises seven featured speakers (including flipped learning pioneers Jonathan Bergmann, Aaron Sams, and Ramsey Musallam), 14 showcase sessions, and 42 concurrent sessions. The conference is scheduled for June 17-19, 2013, and offers virtual attendance options through www.flippedlearning.org.
During this annual conference, Mackin’s president, Randal Heise, will present How to “Be the Change” in a Flipped Environment with Shannon Miller, Teacher-Librarian for the Van Meter, Iowa, School District. This informative and inspirational session will open new doors of thought which will encourage traditional school teachers, librarians, and administrators to embrace the opportunities of the newest technology. This session also will examine how to enhance blended learning and student-led learning and will feature collaborative ideas for flipped teachers and librarians.
Those around the world who are familiar with Mackin know that it is a company dedicated to service and innovation, and it is most comfortable being on the leading edge of technology.
“We are very excited to be part of this revolution in education,” says Randal Heise, president of Mackin Educational Resources. “With the rapid advances in learning opportunities, we believe it is essential to ‘Be the Change’ and not simply just respond to it.”
According to the Flipped Learning Network, flipped learning is simply moving an instructor’s focus from the direct classroom instruction model to an individual learning environment model. This allows teachers to use precious class time for facilitating active problem solving and small group interaction among students instead of lecturing.
