In the article, NCTM President, Linda M. Gojak states,

"Teachers who have begun to flip their classrooms claim that this approach allows more one-on-one time with each student and increases student motivation, at the same time that students take greater responsibility for their own learning."

Keep in mind using a flipped classroom approach is more than just the how-to, as Gojak shares:

"A combination of well-thought-out strategies that consider student needs, incorporate the characteristics of effective instruction, and develop understanding of mathematical concepts will have the greatest impact on student achievement."

Transform Classroom Learning with iPads

In a recent article on edutopia.org, experienced administrator Ben Johnson shares how he feels the iPad can transform classroom learning. Computers allowed students to word process rather than type, to do media presentations instead of show and tell, to find information on the Internet instead of encyclopedias, and to graph data electronically instead of with magic markers. Teachers depend on computers to do the same, as well as using interactive whiteboards to increase the effectiveness of presentations. The iPad can do all these things, along with many other capabilities, and it is super portable, and that might make all the difference." As you enter into the mobile learning realm, you're without a doubt thinking about this topic.
