Flipped classrooms are gaining in popularity as teachers want greater student engagement, teaching flexibility and improved learning outcomes. By having students view lectures outside of class, educators free up face-to-face class time for collaborative exercises, group discussions and one-on-one guidance while creating personalized learning environments.

To achieve a district filled with such classrooms requires three things: technology leadership, teacher commitment, and a 21st century Wi-Fi network.

Join Charles Thacker, Director of Technology, and Linda Gutierrez from Farmington Municipal Schools to learn how they created and used flipped classrooms to enable fair access to learning resources in a 1:1 computing environment with more than 10,000 students with diverse learning styles and needs. And how having the right kind of network made it possible.

You will learn:
• How Farmington uses flipped classrooms to engage every student and let them guide their own learning.
• How Farmington selected a wireless network to support digital curriculum delivery.
• How a reliable, scalable and flexible Wi-Fi network supports uninterrupted, 21st century learning.
