Things are progressing nicely in our efforts to pilot a flipped classroom model with a 7th grade math class. The iPads have all been set up, our student/parent agreements have been developed, the teacher has been trained in using and syncing the iPads, and tonight we had our first parent meeting!
About twelve or thirteen parents attended, which was a pretty good percentage on a night where there were lots of other activities going on at school. The parents were very receptive to our project plans and all in attendance were willing to have their students participate in the pilot - our first adventure with sending iPads home!
It is really very exciting for all of us. The teacher and students are looking forward to their new learning format and the parents are very interested in seeing how this promotes math learning - but I also think they are interested in learning more about using iPads along with their children.
