Tools and techniques to implement a flipped learning model

The last 18 months have thrown many unexpected challenges at educators around the world, and one that teachers have mentioned the most to us has been the almost overnight move to teaching remotely.

Presenter: Edward Smith works with schools across Africa, the Middle East, North America and Europe

Level Up: Game-based learning and gamification in the classroom

Students love games, and they often spend their time playing them obsessively. How can we as educators harness this power of student motivation for gaming to our instructional purposes?

In this webinar, we touch on self-determination theory and intrinsic motivation, exploring what factors are involved, how they can be transposed into the online classroom, and their crossover with project and enquiry-based learning. Much of the discussion addresses on concrete situations and examples where game-based learning can be an integral part of the student learning experience.

Presenter: John Riley – Teacher of Cambridge IGCSE Co-ordinated Sciences at IOANID Scoala

In this webinar, Edward and Chris explore:

  • the concept of tracking student progress and why it is crucial for differentiated teaching
  • the benefits of understanding your students’ strengths and weaknesses on a micro and macro level
  • the different methods and tools that can support you in having a more holistic understanding of your students’ learning journeys.

Presenters: Edward Smith and Chris Barras from Kognity
