This presentation will introduce participants to the basic principles of Flipped Learning and its practical applications in the classroom. So, what is “Flipped Learning?” Although there is no single definition, the basic concept proposes that educators utilize technology to time-shift direct instruction in a way that maximizes student learning. This is typically achieved by archiving some of the educator’s direct instruction online through screencast videos, therefore freeing up class time for engagement in high-order learning experiences. Shifting direct instruction out of the group setting also creates greater opportunities for remediation, differentiation, skills-mastery, and one-on-one interactions between student and teacher. After tracing the brief history of the movement, we will explore the many ways that educators have effectively leveraged technology to improve learning in flipped classroom settings. The presentation will conclude with a discussion about how flipped learning has enabled educators to experiment with games and gamification in their curriculum.
