Free Technology for Teachers: Flipping Your Classroom With Free Web Tools - Guest Post | educational technology for teachers | Scoop.it

The Flipped Classroom is gaining steam in schools across the world. Flipped classes focus on student interaction and engagement in class and a major component is the technology that can be used to create, deliver, and collaborate. Richard has posted on many of these tools, so I’ll be sharing how I use a combination of tools in a typical unit.  Photo by duchesssa

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, December 23, 2012 12:51 PM

Create, create, create!  Design.  Build!  Love the direction here!

glenn blakney's curator insight, December 25, 2012 11:21 AM

I try to weave Bloom into every lesson and build to the end of the trimester at the top.

Nancy L Zingrone's curator insight, January 26, 2013 5:51 PM

This is a much better trajectory for the elements in the taxonomy. Creativity is both the pinnacle of what we do and at the heart of what we do.
