A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

What are your students doing instead of doing their homework? They are utilizing social media sites, instant messaging, talking on the phone, texting, and surfing the Internet for the latest celebrity gossip. The list is endless. What they are not doing, as much as we’d like, is engaging in academic activities. This seminar considers using a practical instructional model that can be more motivating for students and has the potential to result in significantly increased student achievement.

The flipped classroom has been gaining interest and generating buzz over the last few years. I have designed this seminar to answer some of the questions many teachers have about the flipped classroom. Questions such as:

  • What technology do I need to create a flipped lesson?
Where do I post my flipped lessons?
  • How do I make sure that all my students have access to the flipped lessons?
  • How many of my lessons should be flipped?

The goal of this seminar is to answer these compelling questions and look at ways to design lessons that lend themselves to the flipped philosophy. We will discuss the traditional lecture and how to make it an engaging video for your students to watch on their own terms, and we will go even further. I will show you examples of flipped lessons and walk you through the process of creating your own flipped classroom. Flipping is not just about watching videos of lectures! It is about how to best utilize class time with students.

I look forward to meeting you at the seminar. The day promises to be filled with practices, strategies and perspectives that will empower you to flip your classroom, increase student contact, reach students at their specific learning level, differentiate, and so much more! Once you flip, you will likely never want to go back!

Sincerely,
Kevin M. Steele, Ed.S.

P.S. You will leave with an extensive resource handbook and a repertoire of dynamic and proven ways to take traditional lessons and create exciting and engaging flipped lessons. This will be a highly practical seminar, so come prepared to learn and discover the incredible potential that flipping the classroom has for your teaching and for your students!
