Flipped Class Open Houses
Experienced educators in Flipped Classrooms across the globe literally open their doors to allow interested educators and students to see how Flipped Learning works and what happens when learning is turned on its head. Flipped Class Open Houses are intended to shed light on this approach to learning and encourage other teachers and administrators to give Flipped Learning a try in their own schools/districts.
Originally hosted by Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams, the pioneers of flipped learning, these open house classes help to share the experiences of flipped educators with others. They believe the best way to understand flipped learning is to physically visit a flipped learning class! Students are encouraged to attend with their teachers. Credentialed members of the press are also welcome to attend.
The Winter 2013 Open Houses were held on February 6 in conjunction with Digital Learning Day.
Stay tuned for the next round of Open Houses. Consider hosting one! Members of the Ning will be notified on next date.
“I had a great experience hosting an open house on Wed. Feb. 6, 2013. Two teachers from North Carolina attended and they had lots of questions and were very enthusiastic about flipping their math classrooms. The best thing was for them to see my students in action with many diverse learning experiences taking place in the room because they had learned the material before coming to class on-line. The kids loved having guests and they shared freely about how much they loved the classroom environment now that it isn’t ”lecture.” I wish more teachers and administrators could see the good things possible with flipping learning. This was a great experience. Thanks for all the work that goes into setting up the event!”
