The FREE-to-Attend virtual conference is back again this year with pre-conference presentations, big keynotes, and tons of live discussion with the presenters!
#FlipTech2021 July 13th-15th
This is a fully-online event July 13th-15th in which presenters from all over the world will release digital pre-presentations to be viewed by participants starting July 9th. Then, on July 13th-15th, there will be scheduled video conferences in which attendees can discuss, question, and interact with the presenter. The goal of this FREE event is to simply encourage dialogue around “Looking Forward” into what teaching and learning in the post-Covid classroom looks like.
The conference will launch July 9th for attendees to access presentations and pre-work on Edmodo!
This year we will be using Edmodo as our conference framework, but you will need a free Edmodo account to get access to all of the presentations (to be released later this week) and to access the Zoom links for all of the live discussions that will take place July 13th-15th.

… and that kicks off three awesome days of keynotes and sessions that cover all types of topics well beyond flipped learning with folks like Carolina Buitrago, Helaine Marshall, Crystal Kirch, Hassan Wilson, Angela Barnett from #3rdchat, and so many more!
Two opportunities each day
We scheduled this year’s event in two blocks each day; each block has a keynote presentation and a set of specialized discussion sessions with our many presenters. The two blocks happen in the U.S. morning from 9AM Chicago time to noon, and then again in the U.S. evening from 4pm Chicago time until we wrap up with a more informal digital happy hour at 8pm. The schedule allows much of the world to join at least one of the two conference blocks at a reasonable time locally! We have a wide variety of presenters, and if last year is any indication, we will have a variety of attendees. Education is in transition around the world as we have all been impacted in different ways throughout the last year. Come hear how others have met the challenges of their experiences and join a rich conversation that is “Looking Forward.”
Please plan to join us July 13th-15th as the Flipped Learning Network offers a free online virtual conference bit.ly/fliptech2021freeattendee
