Present.me- Flip your class but keep the teacher! by @mseideman I have been experimenting with the flipped classroom (see below for more info). Present.Me is a wonderful website that allows users to flip their classroom but still keep the personal touch of the teacher. When you are finished you can publish and share the link of your lesson to your class. Application in the Classroom: Flipping your classroom leaves you extra time in class for more interactive workStudents can use Present.me for public speaking practiceGive students the option of submitting their project using Present.me rather than speaking in front of the classPosting lessons online means that parents can keep up-to-date with the topics their children are studying and can make a personal connection with their teacherMake yours a social school by creating a Present.me about the whole class. What is the flipped classroom? Students watch 5-7 minute video lecture at home at their own pace, communicate with peers and teacher via online discussion boards or blogs.
