Education Flipped Online Learning February 5 - February 19
In a traditional classroom setting, students receive instruction at school then practice at home by completing a homework assignment. Unfortunately, many students leave the classroom still unsure of how to do the task and end up practicing imperfectly, hindering their ability to master a standard. A flipped classroom aims to help students grasp concepts more successfully by sending home instructional videos instead of independent practice. This teaching method allows teachers to incorporate 21 st century learning into daily lesson activities and devote more energy to differentiated learning. Flipped videos contain the instruction normally found in the classroom, freeing up in-class time for the practice. This allows teachers to observe their students practicing skills and provide instant assistance. Students can watch the lesson multiple times if they are struggling to understand.
21st Century Learners Weekend Workshop March 2- March 3
“Sit and Get,” traditional classroom approaches are out! We invite educators to join us as we take a leap into exploring new teaching styles and strategies that are active, engaging and inspiring for students. Discover the benefits of STEAM Education and Project/Problem Based Learning (PBL), and how these approaches increase student achievement across all subject areas. PBL is a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems. STEAM Education incorporates the 4 C’s (collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication) of 21 st Century thinking into an educational setting. Today’s learners demand engagement and complexity. Join us as we gain information on how to effectively respond to the needs of our students through best practices!
