Free Webinar: What Works in Flipped Classrooms

leave a comment »

From Education Week:

The flipped classroom model—in which students watch video lessons for homework and receive more direct, individual instruction from teachers during class time—is rapidly gaining popularity in K-12 schools, with websites such as Khan Academy offering thousands of free video lessons. Some teachers see flipped learning as a way to spend more time working with their students and less time lecturing. But critics of the approach have called it nothing more than a high-tech, time-shifting tool that often leaves students confused about the content they’re supposed to be absorbing at home. Our guests will discuss the pros and cons of this approach and highlight the best methods for making a flipped classroom successful.

Guests:

  • Jonathan Bergmann, lead technology facilitator, Joseph Sears School, Kenilworth, Ill., co-author of Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day
  • Aaron Sams, director of digital learning, Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Pittsburgh, co-author, Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day
  • Shelley Wright, high school learning consultant, Prairie South School Division, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada

Webinar Date: Wednesday, November 28, noon – 1 p.m.
