Interview: Science Teacher and the EdTech Used to do the Flip

Interview: Science Teacher and the EdTech Used to do the Flip | Education | Scoop.it
"Welcome to the second installment of 21st Century Educator's teachers-in-the-field interviews! We first interviewed a high school history teacher to discover his favorite digital tools. This time we interviewed a science teacher, Mrs. M, who has spent the last two years making a full 360 degree flip of her physics and chemistry class. She shares what she's learned from the last two years, how to start 'flipping', and our favorite part - a nice huge list of her tried-and-true EdTech tools that help her 'flip' be a success."
