Flipped Learning – You’ve read about it, maybe you have even attempted it.  Educators in elementary and secondary schools for all disciplines are embracing Flipped Learning.  Our community kicked off its webinar program with a three-part Flipped Learning Primer that will cover all the basics of this powerful type of learning. Discover how to move direct instruction from the group learning space to the individual learning space so that class time can be used for active problem solving by students and one-to-one or small group tutoring with the teacher. Have students come to class ready to jump into the lesson, answer questions, work on collaborative projects, and explore the content further by providing short lectures for them to watch as many times as they wish on their own time. Join Flipped Learning Network’s Jonathan Bergmann and Kristin Daniels to learn more about Flipped Learning and how to reach all of your students in every class every day.  They introduce the concept of Flipped Learning, where educators actively transfer the responsibility and ownership of learning to their students.
