One of the things we do at the beginning of the school year is to hold parent meetings for each of our 1:1 iPad classrooms where parents are informed about flip learning and sign an agreement. This has become an essential component before students take their iPads home. It also helps to develop a stronger home to school connection as well as making parents part of the learning.

Each teacher customizes the presentation to meet the needs of their school, classroom, and students.
These meetings provide parents opportunities to ask questions about the project and use of the iPads for learning. iAchieve project staff are also there to help clarify and support.
While not every parent is able to attend the initial meeting, project teachers often schedule additional group or one-on-one meetings with parents.
These parent meetings have really proved to be an effective way to start off the school year for the iAchieve Project!
