From Harvard University to inner city Detroit to rural Colorado; from basic introductory classes to AP courses, teachers are experiencing significant improvement in student achievement transitioning to the ‘Flipped Classroom’ model. A side benefit is that teachers save time.

The flip model represents a merger of:

  • The Socratic method where students are responsible for meaningful conversation while in class
  • Research in cognitive science that shows students need immediate feedback
  • The emergence of powerful learning online communities where student thinking can become more visible and mutually supportive

The flip model represents a significant cultural change in the traditional classroom and changing roles of student and teacher.

Attendees will:

  • Learn how to make thinking visible
  • Discover the steps to get ready to shift to The Flip
  • Learn what not to do when getting started with the Flipped Classroom model
  • See how a Flipped Classroom actually saves teachers time
