What is this “flipped classroom” people are talking about?
What are the implications for parents, teachers and students?
#PTchat, Wed., 4/25 9PM EST/6PM PST
The “flipped classroom” is defined by Knewton in this cool infographic, as “inverted teaching methods, delivering instruction online outside of class and moving “homework” into the classroom.”
For schools interested in venturing down the “flipped” road must look at the implications of this model for students, staff and families. Every educational and home setting has a different level of readiness for outside the box ideas like this one.
During Parent-Teacher Chat (#PTchat) this Wednesday, 4/25 at 9PM Eastern / 6PM Pacific, we’ll spend an hour discussing the flipped classroom model. We’ve invited parents, teachers and leaders who are currently harnessing the “flipped classroom,” as well as some high school students in flipped classrooms to join our discussion and help us see it through their lens as well. The diverse perspectives present during the chat will make for a lively, informative and collaborative discussion.
