(West Plains)- The West Plains School District is in the initial stages of a 1:1 Technology Initiative. In an effort to support teachers in this transition, Colton’s Steak House & Grill of West Plains sponsored the “Flip Your Classroom Contest” on September 6.
On that day, educators across the globe took a pledge to flip one lesson to experience Flipped Learning, with the expectation this leads to further flipped units or an entire course. Based on a survey conducted by the Speak Up National Research Project done in the Fall of 2012, they estimated that only 3% of teachers in the U.S. know about or “do” flipped learning. Yet 27% of principals indicated their teachers wanted to try it this year!
The 3 contest winners were Julia Brake, Justin Bennett and Allison Arnold. A special thank you for all those who entered! Watch for the next 1:1 technology integration contest coming soon.
