This year's “Flipped Classroom Presentation Tour” starts next month!
This spring and summer I will be traveling to a number of different conferences where I will be delivering different presentations focused on the Flipped Classroom. It would be awesome to meet some EmergingEdTech readers and talk about how you're using technology in your classroom.
Will you be going to any of these conferences? I hope you'll stop by and say hello!

We'll examine the “whys and the hows” of flipping the classroom, share some specific techniques to employ, and examine empirical evidence supporting the success of the practice. The session will wrap up with a demonstration of a number of the tools and applications that can be used and some thoughts on strategies for moving forward.

My Session: Beyond Screencasting: Alternative (Free) Tools for Creating & Customizing Flipped Learning Content
In this session, we will spend 5 to 10 minutes examining the basic functionality of a number of excellent free Web applications that can be used to create flipped learning content. We consider examples of how these tools can be used in the flipped classroom, and review some of the unique capabilities that each app has to offer. We will also discuss participant’s experiences with these tools and strive to get a sense of which of them the group considers the most beneficial for flipped teaching and learning. Applications to be examined include: Metta.io, Ed.ted.com, Lessonpaths.com, Movenote.com, Tackk.com, and others.
Hope to see you out on the road!
