We know, “flipped learning” is just one of the many educational buzz-words circulating that promises much but delivers very little, right? WRONG! Flipped learning can and will have a profound impact on you and your students. Trust us - we started down this path in our algebra classes almost 5 years ago, and we haven’t looked back since! It’s become one of the best things we have undertaken to grow as professionals and better serve our students.

If you are thinking of flipping your classroom or even just a single lesson or unit, you will come away with ideas for immediate implementation of flipped learning. We have discovered the “magic sauce” that makes the flipped classroom successful. We will share the pitfalls to avoid, how to efficiently create teacher-produced videos, ways to guide students to use video instruction effectively, how to anticipate student issues and questions, and the importance of using daily formative assessment with immediate feedback. We also will dispel the myth that technology and videos will replace the teacher since we are still the “center of the equation” in our classrooms but now with the dual roles of both teacher and coach.
