Visit These Resources..... Then Attend The Free Flipped Classroom Webinar

Do you plan on attending the upcoming Siemens STEM Academy Webinar? It really is a must attend professional development experience for anyone thinking about flipping the classroom. Your host will include Dr. Lodge McCammon, a curriculum and contemporary media specialist, from the Friday Institute at North Carolina State University.  He will be joined by leading North Carolina teachers from a variety of content areas and grade levels who are exploring how flipped learning works in the public school classroom. As promised in the last post... we have some resources and activities you may wish to visit before this exciting webinar.

1. First visit this Friday Institute page and watch the first two videos. They are short but will get you ready to learn more about doing a flip. Their titles include;  No Lecture In The Classroom and Why I Flipped My Classroom.

2. Next, take a journey to Katie Gimbar's YouTube Playlist. Here you can take a look at a series of frequently asked questions answered by a teacher who is currently flipping her classroom. You will enjoy the nine short and informative videos answering questions teachers have in regards to the flipped classroom. Discover what to do if  kids are not watching the videos, or solve the problem of no home connection. It really will be time well spent.

3. Last, Take a moment to meet  teachers that are flipping their classroom and learn from their examples. You will find a wide range of areas including STEM and even areas outside of the STEM subjects.

Be sure to read some upcoming  Siemens STEM Academy blog posts to discover some other great resources for those attempting the flip!
