FLIPPED LEARNING FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
In my twitter feed this morning, I came across this tweet about flipped learning for professional learning. This has great potential but obviously required innovative thinking and ability to adapt. I believe that this concept would be embraced by teachers!

FYI – Flipped learning is not just about videos
My reflections on flipping the classroom
- Flipped learning requires intentional content
- Need to evaluate the content being taught
- Consider what needs to teacher directed and what can be student driven
- Need to change the culture of what is learning
- Does NOT have to be solely video delivery
- Requires flexibility, ability to be adaptive and access to resources
- Need to consider a variety of approaches (situational)
- Use the KISS principle – KEEP IT SHORT (rather than simple) in order to engage
