Flipped Classroom & Twitter

It’s exciting when you see work you’ve done days, weeks, months or even years ago reappearing on social media. Back in February, I did a webinar on the flip classroom model in education. Just recently EdTech K-12 magazine (@EdTech_K12) posted an article The Do’s and Don’ts of Flipped Classrooms. The article included quotes from the webinar as well as the video itself. It’s been tweeted around for the past few weeks, which is really awesome.  If you haven’t checked it out, the video is below.

So while I’m on the subject of flipped classroom and Twitter I wanted to let everyone know about some great opportunities to learn with me this summer. I’ll be doing the flip classroom in Chicago June 19 and 20th and in Cambridge July 17 and 18th I’ll be doing a workshop on Twitter and PLNs June 23 and 24th in Cambridge.

I love doing these workshops. I have seen incredibly thoughtful and creative work produced by caring, energized educators come out of the flip classroom workshops. I love the flip classroom concept because it really addresses how we can maximize our face-to-face time with our students. It also starts great conversations which allow me to constantly evolve and grow as an educator. I strongly believe that technology in the hands of energized and thoughtful educators can transform our educational experiences. The flipped classroom helps kickstart that process.

The Twitter workshop allows me to help educators discover the world of social media and become a part of it. When it comes to learning, it is my best PD. When it comes to sharing and reflection, it expands my reach allowing for multiple and varied perspectives. And when it comes to support, there’s an entire world of educators out there who have been there and done that and will help you through. Together we are better, and social media can bring us together.

Hope you can join me!
