Don’t Flip Out About Flipping Your Classroom

Inspire Drive, Creativity, and Innovation – All in One Project

Wednesday, June 25 * 1:00-2:00 * 102-C

Join us as we explore a revolutionary approach to Project-Based Learning: 20-Time.  Examine ways to allow students to tap into their passions and interests by picking their own project and learning outcomes, while going “above and beyond” curriculum standards.  Investigate ways to teach students to think on their own without being told what to do. Hear student testimonials, discuss success stories, and walk away with a variety of resources to implement 20-Time in your classroom.

Teacher tested, these apps have proven to be effective (and fun!) teaching tools across the high school curriculum. Access to all of these
features is free and incredibly user-friendly.
