As more mobile devices and technologies become available to teachers and students, school districts are looking for innovative teaching models to support teaching and learning. The Flipped Learning model uses a blended learning approach to redefine classroom instruction and homework through the use and access of digital tools at home and in school. Using the Flipped Learning model, teachers are able to focus homework time on lower level thinking skills while applying higher level thinking skills to classroom time. This class will introduce participants to the Flipped Learning model, will explore digital tools to support the model, and allow opportunities to create lessons to begin implementation.
Contact Hours: 5
- Research and define the Flipped Learning Model
