Room 427 How We Flipped The Script  Sarah Thomas via GHO In this session, I will share how I used flipping in my classroom. Flipping incorporates prerecorded video lessons, created by either the teacher or student(s). It has transformed teaching by meeting our “digital natives” halfway, helping them to grasp concepts on their terms, using their devices. By the end of the session, participants will be familiar with this innovative technology, and have ideas of how to start implementing it in their classrooms.

Room 428 Flipped the Chemistry Classroom and Lab  Adam Held & Sonya Birazian  Sonya and I are both first year flippers, and we have been working together to flip our chemistry classrooms and labs. We have had great success with the flipped approach, and would like to share and encourage others that are thinking of flipping their own science classrooms and labs. In addition, I have been differentiating my classroom, using the flipped videos to allow the students to work at their own pace. I have some tips for anyone that is thinking of setting up a flipped AND differentiated science classroom. Participants are asked to download the app Nearpod if possible.
