Five Factors Signal a Paradigm Shift in Flipped Learning has Begun
On March 1, 2017, the Flipped Learning Global Initiative (FLGI), a worldwide coalition of educators, researchers, technologists, professional development providers and education leaders reported evidence that a global paradigm shift in flipped learning has begun. An FLGI task force identified five factors that signal the start of a new era in Flipped Learning:
- Awareness that Flipped Learning is a dynamic, not static instructional model that is rapidly changing
- Recognition that Flipped Learning is evolving in unexpected ways because of increased research, classroom innovations and advances in technology
- The emergence of Flipped Learning as a global movement
- A new awareness about the scope, impact, and implications of Flipped Learning
- Expanding global demand for skilled Flipped Learning professionals
In February or 2017, FLGI Researchers Fellows and Master Teachers confirmed the findings of the management team tasked with building the global network to support flipped learning. The findings came out of the 12-month project that launched the Flipped Learning Global Initiative.
“The ground underneath flipped learning is shifting,” said Jon Bergmann, Flipped Learning pioneer and a member of the FLGI management team. “Over the last 12 months, we’ve been following several developments that we think require every professional involved in flipped learning to update their understanding, recalibrate their thinking and adopt a new stance toward flipped learning. The research, hard data, anecdotes and opinions of well-informed professionals have confirmed that flipped learning has entered a new stage. The future of flipped learning is going to be very different from the past.”
Flipped Learning 3.0 Webinar Series
The Flipped Learning Global Initiative has designated the new era and paradigm Flipped Learning 3.0. FLGI is has launched a series of webinars to introduce flipped learning stakeholders to Flipped Learning 3.0. The online sessions will discuss the practical implications for teachers, administrators, tech coaches, flipped learning trainers, consultants, researchers, technology developers and education policy makers. Each session will host Flipped Learning 3.0 innovators with experience in each of the five factors driving the paradigm shift in flipped learning. Each webinar will offer practical steps you can take to be prepared for the future of flipped learning.
Note: All webinars will be recorded. However, you must register in order to receive the email with the link to the recording.
