10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom
Bridget Hardy-Everett's insight:

I am advocate for any type of education that teaches  children  and adults all over the world in an environment that is condusive for them.  However, I understand both the pros and cons of flipped classes, so they are not a fit for everyone on either end; be it the teachers or the students. 

 

But, if a teacher is an excellent teacher by way of a flipped class, and the student benefits from this type of learning, then I appalud the efforts. 

 

Lastly, this may be an excellent way to prepare students who may want to take online learning classes in college.

The Secret to Staying Motivated (and Motivating Other People)

The Secret to Staying Motivated (and Motivating Other People) | Mentoring | Scoop.it
We all need motivation, and at times, we all need to motivate others. The secret is not an external force, but an internal superpower: inspiration.

Be Motivated and Motivate, Pass Inspiration On!

Ivo Nový's curator insight, November 24, 2013 11:15 AM

Inspiration is the fire that wells within. When you’re inspired, you’re filled with life. You don’t need an alarm clock to wake up; you wake up before the alarm ready to dive into a new day. When you’re inspired, you don’t need to be told what to do at work; you’re already thinking of ways to make your work even better.

John Michel's curator insight, November 25, 2013 11:02 PM

How do you create inspiration within yourself or your company? It comes from doing something that matters, and knowing that you’re a part of something bigger than yourself.

Classroom Flipping: Jump Over The Hurdles | EdTechReview™

Classroom Flipping: Jump Over The Hurdles | EdTechReview™ | Mentoring | Scoop.it

When technology boomed inside the territories of the global hemisphere, all aspects of human life were vastly affected. Especially, the educational sector brought in huge wonders. Students were shoved off the heavy burden of following the same boring conventional educational methods.

 

 “Classroom flipping” was a hit, resulting in wide smiles on the murky faces of students and revival of new spirit of teaching in teachers.

 

To begin with, classroom flipping requires that you reach to every student effectively. Listen to their queries, do on-the-spot mentoring and get them to pursue the rest of the class activities with enthusiasm. This process is successful only when instructions are moved from group learning space to individual learning space. Now what the hurdle here could be:

A short article from London, UK on the benefits to business people of serving on nonprofit boards.  It's an idea that's fundamentally inverse of our common expectations, but one that's absolutely true.  I can attest to this effect myself.  It's not just about giving. You, or your employees, can gain from service.  And here's a link to the original research http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/business/economic-research-and-information/research-publications/Pages/volunteering-The-business-case-the-benefits-of-corporate-volunteering-programmes-in-education.aspx
