Flipped Learning: Gateway to Student Engagement
Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day, in a free webinar to learn how the flipped classroom model can help teachers gain more face-to-face time with students, foster real differentiated or personalized learning, and challenge students to take responsibility for their learning.
Tuesday, August 26, 2014, 3:00 p.m. eastern time
Flipped Mastery provides multiple opportunities for students to demonstrate understanding, letting students learn from their mistakes, practice more, and master the material at their own pace. This is the magic for student success!
In the webinar, Bergmann and Sams will share methodologies that worked for them and allowed students to explore deeper learning opportunities and pedagogies (e.g., PBL, CBL, UDL, Mastery, Inquiry). The key is creating an environment for learning that is sustainable, reproducible, and manageable. Students and teachers are able to assess mastery and differentiate each lesson when remediation is requested or needed. Extend your learning by registering for the second flipped classroom webinar on September 3 where you will tour flipped classrooms across all disciplines and all levels.
Jonathan Bergmann believes that educators should ask one guiding question: What is best for my students in my classroom? To the best of his abilities, he has done this in his 25 years as a high school science teacher. He received the Presidential Award for Excellence for Math and Science Teaching in 2002 and was named a semifinalist for the Colorado Teacher of the Year in 2010. He is currently the lead technology facilitator for the Joseph Sears School in Kenilworth, Ill. He is the father of three teenagers and is happily married to the love of his life.
Aaron Sams has been an educator since 2000. He received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching in 2009 and cochaired the committee to revise the Colorado Science Academic Standards. He regularly turns off all his electronic devices to spend time with his wife and three children, and he highly recommends implementing “unplugged Sundays” for those who struggle to power down and spend time with the ones who matter most. Sams holds a bachelor of science degree in biochemistry and a master of arts degree in education, both from Biola University, Colo. He is currently a classroom science teacher in Woodland Park, Colo.
