How to Avoid the 17 Deadly Sins of Flipped Learning Technology Selection

Flipped Learning Technology Selection Course | taught by Jon Bergmann

Course description

Nothing can kill a flipped learning program more quickly than the selection of expensive, complex technology that is poorly suited to flipped learning. Education technology graveyards are littered with the remains of tools, programs, and gizmos that teachers couldn't or wouldn't use. If teachers, administrators, IT staff and school districts had only known how to identify the best and simplest technologies for flipped learning. Now they can.

This one-hour, free course was created to empower you with the ability to avoid the 17 biggest mistakes educators routinely make when choosing flipped learning technology. When you're done you'll have the ability to distinguish between the good, the bad and the ugly in flipped learning technology. You'll also receive a certificate to prove that you've been trained in this vital skill.

I wish schools would mandate their technology directors to complete this course. This course will save schools tons of time, money and heartache. As the course grows, I'd like to see more interactivity.

Works for Me

by Shelly Moses
Even as someone who has been heavily into tech integration for years, both on the teacher end and the support end. I found this succinct and useful. I even learned a few new gems. So you can teach an old dog new tricks.

I finnish the course

by Julio Alejandro Ramírez Soto
Thanks Jon and to all your team! It was very useful, I took my notes and It made me think about things I have not thought when I've chosen a tool for education. I also was engaged with your storys about been a director in an education institution. Thank you, greetings from Costa Rica

Avoiding deadly sins is effective and efficient

by myron williams
This course provides the basics of how to start using technology in education effectively and efficiently. The teacher provides practical help and suggestions to those who are just starting, as well as though who may be using technology, but want to improve. Well worth the time.

Wish my school had seen this before some of our decisions in the recent past

by john bristow
Course is short, concise, and packed with examples of what not to do--some humorous and some OMG why would someone do that? Packed with knowledge and well worth the hour or so that it takes to go through the videos. Advice: plan on spending 90 minutes or so in a single sitting if possible )if you are doing the course alone). If you are doing this as a group, do three or four videos and then discuss.
