Moving Forward by Looking Back – FlipTech2021 Keynote: Aaron Sams

Looking back at FlipTech 2021

The Flipped Learning Network hosted a fully-online conference in which presenters from around the world submitted short presentations to be viewed prior to the live discussion portion of the event.  The basic idea was to find a way to share “Looking Forward” we address the many student needs resulting from the pandemic’s impact on education.   This series takes a look back at the presentations and some of the conversations from #FlipTech2021.


FlipTech2021 Keynote – “FLIPping Relevant?”

Aaron Sams is an educator, speaker, consultant, and author, in addition to the many other roles he plays in life, who helped pioneer the flipped classroom model of teaching and learning.  Aaron is a founding member of The Flipped Learning Network and is a continuing supporter of effective and innovative learning models including flipped learning.  FlipTech2021 felt that, in this time of upheaval in education, inviting Aaron to open our conference would be a great way to help provide perspective on some of the changes and innovations that have been seen in the last 15-20 years.  We hope that you find his perspective discussed in this video as insightful and relevant as we did.
