How to Flip like a Pro: a learning community for teachers using screencasting in education
The Flipped Learning Network’s online community of practice offers advice and resources to educators who are interested in using a flipped teaching approach.
New technologies have led to a variety of innovations in education. One that gaining momentum in the mainstream is the “flipped classroom.” The traditional teaching approach involves teachers presenting information to a class and then assigning additional reading or activities for homework. In a flipped class, the students take in the material at home via a recorded video lecture, and the class time is used for more interactive or hands-on applications of the new material.
The Flipped Learning Network is a not-for-profit organization that supplies professional learning opportunities and relevant research on this educational practice. The organization has created an online community of practice for educators who are using the flip method with their students. Members can share best practices through groups, a forum, and a video-sharing platform.
