Salt Lake City (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced the release of a new segment with secrets for flipping the classroom with technology to engage students. The segment comes as part of Strategy of the Week, a weekly publication sharing best practices in education on topics like student-centered learning, Common Core implementation, and flipping the classroom.
“Using technology and flipping the classroom is essential to putting students in control of their own learning,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “These technologies give teachers the tools to make classroom instruction relevant to the world our students live in and their future job environments. With the strategies outlined in this segment, educators can get real, applicable ways to use technology in flipping the classroom to have recognizable impact on student growth towards college and career readiness.”
Educators who watch the segment will learn how flipping the classroom is possible through tools like YouTube, Edmodo, Camtasia Stuido and TI-SmartView. They will also see how instructional models focused on flipping the classroom can cut class preparation time for teachers, and engage students towards real growth and achievement.
