Applying The Flipped Classroom Model to the In-Person/Remote Learning Hybrid Schedule Using Google Tools

Event Description

Part of the LTC Back to School Kickoff featuring Google for Education

The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model where the traditional lecture and homework elements are reversed. Pre-recorded video lectures are viewed before class. In-class time is repurposed so students can inquire about lecture content, apply their knowledge, and participate in hands-on activities. By reversing the traditional lecture and homework elements and integrating engaged-learning activities, educators can transition their class from a teacher-centered to a learner-centered environment. Making this transition will completely change the dynamics of the classroom and make students more responsible for their own learning. Student engagement, participation, and understanding increase too! Come discover how you can use Google tools to apply The Flipped Classroom model to the in-person/remote learning hybrid schedule many school districts will be implementing this school year
