The Learning Curve
"Flip" this Lesson


from NAGC

"At the beginning of the school year teachers are establishing the classroom structure and teaching to their experiences," explained Jann Leppien, Associate Professor of Education at the University of Great Falls in Montana, during her webinar on curriculum strategies. Her truthful statement that "curriculum is about teaching life ... we are always seeking meaning ... but, about what? ... about a concept," sums up the essence of the Back to School WOW series now accessible on the NAGC Live Learning Center.

The expert presenters provided teachers and parents with ample resources and a wide variety of ideas to support their efforts. In the final webinar, Brian Housand, assistant professor, East Carolina University and Jennifer Beasley, assistant professor, University of Arkansas, challenged teachers to explore even further — "to embrace technology as a great resource" — and go online for curriculum enhancement and innovative lessons to easily implement and adapt. They provided lists of books to read for professional development and links to some of the countless ways to revive, refresh and renew, to "flip," the traditional classroom. Visit Ted ED to view thousands of "flips," or exceptional, user-created lessons. Brian created a site to provide an example of Live Binders, a virtual 3-ring binder of content rich websites for a changing curriculum: wow-revive. Other suggested sites to visit for inspiration are: Edutopia, ISTE and Learnzillion. more
