The Flipped Learning Global Initiative (FLGI), a worldwide coalition of educators, researchers, technologists, professional development providers and education leaders, has reported evidence that a global paradigm shift in flipped learning has begun. An FLGI task force identified five factors that signal the start of a new era in Flipped Learning:
Awareness that Flipped Learning is a dynamic, not static, instructional model that is rapidly changing
Recognition that Flipped Learning is evolving in unexpected ways because of increased research, classroom innovations and advances in technology
The emergence of Flipped Learning as a global movement
A new awareness about the scope, impact, and implications of Flipped Learning
Expanding global demand for skilled Flipped Learning professionals
In February, FLGI Researchers Fellows and Master Teachers confirmed the findings of the management team tasked with building the global network to support flipped learning. The findings came out of the 12-month project that launched the Flipped Learning Global Initiative.
The Flipped Learning Global Initiative has designated the new era and paradigm Flipped Learning 3.0. FLGI is has launched a series of webinars to introduce flipped learning stakeholders to Flipped Learning 3.0. The online sessions will discuss the practical implications for teachers, administrators, tech coaches, flipped learning trainers, consultants, researchers, technology developers and education policy makers. Each session will host Flipped Learning 3.0 innovators with experience in each of the five factors driving the paradigm shift in flipped learning.
The next webinar is scheduled for March 9, 2017 at 2pm EST.
