Are you looking for guidance for incorporating flipped techniques in your classroom? The basic principle of flipped learning involves providing direct instruction for the individual outside of class so that there is more strategic use of in-class time for group work. Our Flipped Learning for Elementary Education course explores practical ways that educators can incorporate this model into their classrooms. Within this course, we’ll cover how to teach different flipped subjects, incorporating technology, and how to provide differentiated instruction.
