Why this happens also isn’t clear, but there are some common patterns and missteps to look for while designing or evaluating a learning process. 5 Digital Tools For The Flipped Classroom Hafsa Wajeeh, dtopgadgets Have you “Flipped your classroom” yet?

50 Education Technology Tools Every Teacher Should Know About via Edudemic Technology and education are pretty intertwined these days and nearly every teacher has a few favorite tech tools that make doing his or her job and connecting with students a little bit easier and more fun for all involved.
