There have been a lot of people talking about the flipped classroom. Many people think it is just videos at home and homework in class. It is so much more. When teachers flip their class they ask one fundamental question: What is the best use of class time? So the key to the flipped class is how class time is re-imagined.
To that end we want to invite you to see how teachers from across the globe are flipping their classes. Thirty-six sites from around the world have offered to open their doors in conjunction with Digital Learning Day on Friday, March 13, 2015. There are fifteen states and twelve countries you can visit. The US states are: AL, CT, FL, IL, IN, LA, MA, MN, MO, NC, NY, OH, TX, UT, VA, and you can visit classes in the following countries: Brazil, China, India, Italia, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Morocco, Serbia, Singapore, The Netherlands, UK, USA.
So go out and go visit (in person) a flipped class and experience a classroom where students are the center of learning. Sign up at: http://flippedlearning.org//site/Default.aspx?PageID=104. The deadline to sign up is March 12th.
