Flipped Classroom: Turning Traditional Library Programs Upside Down
Wednesday, October 17, 2018
2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)
Description: Representatives from Gwinnett County (GA) and Cobb County (GA) Public Libraries will discuss and demonstrate techniques for using the flipped classroom model of educational programming. This method embraces a “learn together” approach that builds upon existing content vs. a traditional instructor-student dynamic. Flipped classrooms are versatile and powerful, lending themselves to an endless array of possibilities. This approach accommodates individual learning needs and pacing while fostering group support and collaboration. The result is a cumulative and immersive learning experience for all ages.
