There's a new buzzword - 'flipping'.  Flipping the classroom, and now, Flipping the conference. 

What's it all about?

Using technology to deliver what used to be delivered in the classroom (or conference).  And then spending classroom (or conference) time talking about what pupils (students, delegates) have already had the chance to view.

  • on the concept of the flipped classroom
  • YouTube on 'The Flipped Classroom':- 
"Peer into Aaron Sams' classroom as he explains why he flipped his classroom. Aaron Sams, along with Jonathan Bergmann were the first to flip their classes. They currently teach in Woodland Park Colorado and are writing a book about the Flipped Class."

So today, Whittaker offers you a posting from - Flipping the Conference.  Mention it to our own educational technologist, Gordon McLeod, and see his face light up. (Well, it might not, if too many people mention it, but you could be the first ...)
