At MusicDiscipline users can automatically generate balanced practice sessions that fit their time constraints and are altered each time so that their sessions are balanced and nothing gets left behind!

Educators Report "Flipped Classroom" Improves Test Scores

Educators Report "Flipped Classroom" Improves Test Scores | technologies | Scoop.it

I talked about the "flipped classroom", and the potential use of the model for CPD within Learning Providers, at our 2012 Annual Event in Southport.

 

Like any new methods/tools etc., learners need instruction & support as they are introduced into learning/teaching/cpd.

 

Yes time needs to be invested into producing resources to facilitate the "flipped classroom/cpd" but both return on investment and value on investment make it very worth while.
