Reflections on my first year teaching with the iPad in a Flipped Classroom

Reflections on my first year teaching with the iPad in a Flipped Classroom | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"I teach at a technical school in Verona, Italy.   Last year I started converting my ESL/ESP classes to  "flipped" courses, as I have found that this new methodology allows teachers to use their time and resources in the best possible way.  The flipped approach has changed the way teaching and learning occur in my classes.  Perhaps the most appealing aspect of this teaching technique is that it allows students to review lessons anytime, anywhere on their digital devices. They can watch educational videos at home, reserving class time for in-depth discussions or class projects."

"Flipping" your classroom does not have to be with an iPad.  It can be any computer-laptop, Chrome book, desk top, even a smart phone.  The article is one teacher's feedback on having a "flipped classroom."  That's the kind of testimony we want to read-words from the teachers.
