Flip Your Classroom Day: A Global Initiative Flipped Day

What is Flipped Day?

A day when educators across the globe flip one lesson. What does that mean? On Flipped Day, instead of delivering content for a particular lesson from the front of the room, instead:
  • Create a recording of that content ahead of time or
  • Curate a recording someone else has created
  • Assign the recording as homework for students to interact with before they come to class October 6
  • Engage your students in class with a creative activity to deepen their understanding of the lesson

When is Flipped Day?

October 6, 2015 Note this is a change from last year when it was held on October 1st

How do I participate?

Commit to flipping ONE lesson on or around October 6, 2015.  Tell us if you are participating in Flipped Day by clicking HERE or filling out the form below.  

Create or Curate?

While the FLN encourages teachers to create their own videos, we know many educators prefer to use others’ videos as they start to flip or to supplement their own work.  We offer you both options, figure out what works for you! Let us know on the pledge form if you will flip your own lesson or use one from the list!
Create -- If you want to create your own, our friends at TechSmith have created this tutorial on how to make your own videos. Click here to see how to get started, how to identify a lesson, and organize, record, review and share your screencast.
Curate -- Want to start out by borrowing someone else's video content? Not a problem! Visit flippedclass.com, and choose from one of the videos listed there.

History of Flipped Day

On September 6, 2013, the Flipped Learning Network™ hosted the first
Flip Your Classroom Day.  Over 400 educators in 25 countries took a pledge to flip a lesson to experience Flipped Learning, with the expectation this leads to further flipped units or an entire course. Based on a survey conducted by the Speak Up National Research Project (Fall, 2012), we estimate that only 3% of teachers in the U.S. know about or "do" flipped learning. Yet 27% of principals indicated their teachers wanted to try it this year! Thank you for joining the growing ranks of educators who are moving from a teacher-centered classroom to a student-centered learning environment.
