Flipped Classroom - Transitioning to a Flipped Classroom
Presenter: Jason Strains
I taught math the same way year after year. After four years of doing things the exact same way, I discovered the flipped model. I will talk about my transition to utilizing the flipped model in my classroom including: why I made the decision to switch, typical questions that arise from parents and students, what my flipped classroom looked like at the beginning, what it looks like today, and what I want it to look like in the future. I will also be sharing student feedback from my first few years of flipping my classroom, and hopefully, by the time we are done, you will be excited and energized to flip your own classroom and have a better idea of what works and what doesn't.

Whether you are just starting to flip or you are constantly assessing your best practices with students, this session will take you through 15 questions to consider in 2015 as you strive to make your flipping experience even better for you and your students. Start by considering your ideal classroom and what you and your students will be doing in the individual and shared spaces. Analyze your unique situation, and how Flipped Learning can help move your class toward your ideal. Consider what obstacles you must overcome, how students will show learning, where you will store content, how you will use videos, whether you will teach “soft skills,” and more. Listen and learn, or share ideas and your own questions. This session is designed so that you can start exactly where you are, and then incorporate the experiences of others to make it even better.

Flipped Classroom - Inquiry Flipped Classroom
Presenter: George Phillip
One of the more popular terms in education is the Flipped Classroom. There are many ways to flip your classroom, from creating videos, outside reading and blogging, Project-Based Learning, Inquiry-Based Learning, etc. In my interactive presentation, participants will learn how to create a Flipped Lesson that utilizes the most recent research in how the brain learns new material. Participants will also learn about more meaningful ways for students to show understanding/mastery. This process is adopted from Ramsey Musallam’s Explore, Flip, Apply model.
