Distractions tempt us at every turn, from an ever-growing library of Netflix titles to video games (Animal Crossing is my current vice) to all of the other far more tantalizing things we could be doing instead of doing what actually needs to be done. Is there any hope to focus on the things that matter in a world that wants us to do everything all the time? Spoiler: the answer is yes. Nir Eyal, avid Pocket user and author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life, sat down with us to share his insights on how to beat distraction and stop feeling guilty about watching YouTube videos or playing Animal Crossing on your downtime. Ontological Flip Teaching Training models are designed for students to acquire knowledge at the individual level. Yet that knowledge is not usually applied later to increase organisational knowledge, as represented by the didactic resources available on a subject, nor to improve the effectiveness of the subject itself. In industrial, economic and production areas, knowledge is considered a part of an organisation's value. This takes into account the knowledge that is acquired by individuals while doing their work, which can both help improve the work of their peers and increase the overall knowledge available within the organisation.
The Teacher's Guide To Flipped Classrooms Since Jonathan Bergman and Aaron Sams first experimented with the idea in their Colorado classrooms in 2004, flipped learning has exploded onto the larger educational scene.

F.I.T.C.H. I made a short video for next year's students on how to get the most out of a "Flip Class" video. For their summer packet this year, they are going to be doing some "flip class-y" things... rather than just being given a packet of review problems to do, they are going to be given that packet, have videos to go along with each lesson, and then submit a reflection similar to a WSQ online. I'm hoping this will help ease my students in to next year's class. We will have six sections of Math Analysis in the fall, split between me and another teacher. The other teacher is considering doing some aspects of the flipped class next year, but not fully like I am doing. Regardless, we hope that this will prepare them for the new type of learning and set the stage for the student reflection and responsibility that will be required in a flipped classroom.
The flipped classroom: six myths – Kris Shaffer What is the flipped classroom? According to many in the educational technology business, it’s using online video to deliver lectures to students and personalize the learning process. However, if you read the work of education researchers, the flipped class model is more about promoting active learning in class, in pursuit of higher-level, critical thinking skills. So which is it?

SWOT Analysis A scan of the internal and external environment is an important part of the strategic planning process. Environmental factors internal to the firm usually can be classified as strengths (S) or weaknesses (W), and those external to the firm can be classified as opportunities (O) or threats (T).
