The Flipped Learning Global Initiative

The Coalition

The Flipped Learning Global Initiative (FLGI), is a worldwide coalition of educators, researchers, technologists, professional development providers and education leaders who are committed to flipped learning. The Flipped Learning Global Initiative, (FLGI), was created to support the rapidly expanding adoption of flipped learning all over the world, including China, Taiwan, Spain, UAE, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Italy, Korea, Argentina, Iceland, Sweden, India and the United States. FLGI aims to fill the growing global need for collaboration across borders in three domains: research curation and distribution, evolving best practices in flipped learning, and technology selection and implementation.

The VisionJonimage9

Jon Bergmann is one of the co-founders and pioneers of the flipped classroom. Jon has traveled the world speaking and training school leaders and educators in the flipped classroom model. He has seen first-hand the global promise, passion, and potential for flipped learning. He has also seen the pitfalls and myriad ways that flipped learning can be compromised by bad practice, inappropriate technology, and poor execution. The Flipped Learning Global Initiative was created to support the successful adoption and implementation of the flipped learning model around the world.

The Mission

The mission of the Flipped Learning Global Initiative is to coordinate, orchestrate and scale the key elements required to successfully expand flipped learning internationally. FLGI’s primary focus is building bridges between the silos of robust flipped learning activity occurring worldwide.

The FLGI leadership team collaborates to identify and develop partnerships, initiatives, projects, best in class vendors, products, and services to introduce and support flipped learning around the globe. T

The Approach

The Initiative divides the world into regions and identifies champions to introduce and support flipped learning in each region. Regional candidates present their programs, plans, projects and tech tools designed to help introduce or support flipped learning. Pending approval, mission partners are recognized as part of the Flipped Learning Global Initiative. Accepted organizations, companies, and vendors, become members of FLGI, and receive an endorsement, certification, on-going access to research and best practices in return for supporting the Initiative.
