Virtual Spots Still Available for FlipCon13

Flipped learning networkFlipCon13 is a national flipped learning conference taking place from June 17-19 at Stillwater Area High School in Stillwater, MN. Though onsite slots have already been filled, virtual attendance options are still available. Hosted by the Flipped Learning Network, FlipCon13 will present seven featured speakers (including flipped learning pioneers Jonathan Bergmann, Aaron Sams, and Ramsey Musallam), 14 showcase sessions, and 42 concurrent sessions. For a peek into what the conference offers, check out the full online schedule.

According to the Flipped Learning Network, “flipped learning is simply moving an instructor’s focus from the direct classroom instruction model to an individual learning environment model. This allows teachers to use precious class time for facilitating active problem solving and small group interaction among students instead of lecturing.”

Randal Heise Mackin president and conference sponsor will present How to “Be the Change” in a Flipped Environment with Shannon Miller, teacher librarian from Van Meter, IA, and moderator of SLJ’s “Be the Change: Take the Lead on Standards” webcasts.
