Grantee wins Kindle Fire for “flipping” students’ world

Grantee wins Kindle Fire for “flipping” students’ world

What does it mean to flip a classroom? Emily Brill, of Keystone Oaks School District in Pittsburgh, PA, found out after attending workshops hosted by the Flipped Learning Network and funded by a $2,000 NEA Foundation Learning & Leadership Grant.

The knowledge she gained allowed her to pilot a flipped classroom, in which her French, and later Spanish, students started to learn new content at home on an individual basis. What used to be their homework was then done in a dynamic classroom space with Brill’s guidance. Watch her video above to see how Brill turned her classroom on its head with this blended learning approach.
