Concept by: Marcus Sheehan
Many of today’s classrooms incorporate elements of flipped and remote learning. But without an understanding of the proper tools, flipped or remote learning can pose a huge strain on both teachers and students. Throughout this course, we will delve into the best EdTech tools from around the world and especially Finland. We will break down each tool shown with step by step instructions so that you will gain the confidence and knowledge to use it in your own classroom. Rather than sitting around, participants will use the tools throughout the course, engaging in fun and active learning.
Participants to the course will be able to:
- Create a flipped classroom and its benefits;
- Get to know numerous EdTech tools that can assist in a remote/flipped learning environment
- Give a detailed look at how to set up these tools for your class
- Learn through play approach with all the EdTech tools presented in the course.
