History of Flipped Day
On September 6, 2013, the
Flipped Learning Network™ hosted the first
Flip Your Classroom Day. Over 400 educators in 25 countries took a pledge to flip a lesson to experience Flipped Learning, with the expectation this leads to further flipped units or an entire course. Based on a survey conducted by the Speak Up National Research Project (Fall, 2012), we estimate that only 3% of teachers in the U.S. know about or "do" flipped learning. Yet 27% of principals indicated their teachers wanted to try it this year! Thank you for joining the growing ranks of educators who are moving from a teacher-centered classroom to a student-centered learning environment.
Thanks to Mark Wilson for the "flipped day" idea! Read the history here.
