Have you ever wondered just what the buzz of "flipping your language classroom" is all about? In short, it basically means students would watch lesson materials that are traditionally taught in the classroom at home and once they are back in the classroom, students will be able to practice what they have learned at home, thus making much better use of classroom time and increase communications and engagements. Although the concept sounds simple, but the process of producing and understan a high-quality teaching video is NOT. This workshop's goal is to provide the right tools and knowledge to prepare world language teachers on not only how to begin flipping their classrooms, but also develop a network of flipped classrooms that can connect beyond the workshop. During this fast paced three hours workshop session, participant will be learning first hand how to produce quality flipped classroom video to engage higher order thinking skills. Furthermore, participants will take the perspective of a student and participate in a flipped classroom learning simulation. Many technology components will be integrated in the process as a thinking, collaborative and presentation tool to facilitate a final completed video project. This session is open to all levels of technology users, however, a willingness to try new technology tools is a must and required in order to attend this session. What are you waiting for? Let's all FLIP together!
