The Top 5%
In November of 2018, FLGI then organized the “ivy league” of original founders and pioneers of Flipped Learning around the globe into a professional development alliance. The goal of the Flipped Learning Alliance is to establish and support a network of model schools that will be in the top 5 percent of active learning schools in the world. The schools are called Flipped Learning Ivy Schools.
FLGI partnered with National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, and the United Daily News Group, to identify exceptional candidates for Flipped Learning Ivy Schools in Taiwan and China.
Flipped Learning is a framework that enables educators to reach every student. The Flipped approach inverts the traditional classroom model by introducing course concepts before class, allowing educators to use class time to guide each student through active, practical, innovative applications of the course principles.
