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.

The information is clear and simple. Very informative, offers good ideas for schools and teachers to avoid mistakes that will blame the tech instead their lack of preparation, using their mistakes to justify stay in their comfort zone. Thanks for offering this valuable tool. Best

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.
