The Art of a Flipped Classroom – Turning Learning on its Head
Date: Wednesday, March 21, 2012
Time: 2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT
Duration: 1 hour
Sign up for this free webinar to learn more about Flipped Learning and how to reach all of your students in every class every day. This overview will introduce participants to the concept of Flipped Learning: Where educators are actively transferring the responsibility and ownership of learning to the students.
Flipped learning happens when the teacher’s lecture is delivered to students via video outside of the classroom. Then traditional class time is used for active problem solving and one-to-one or small group tutoring with the teacher. Students can watch the short video lectures as many times as they wish to grasp the content and then come to class ready to jump into the lesson, ask questions, work on collaborative projects and explore the content further.
Find out what the technology requirements are and then quickly and simply implement this growing trend in your classrooms. This session is sponsored by two of the major supporters of this ideology: EduVision by JDL Horizons and TechSmith, maker of Camtasia software. For more information about the technical needs to flip your classroom, contact Tom Lapping. Be sure to attend the Flip Conference June 18-20.
