True Learning: Beyond the Flipped Classroom

What happens when learning for both the students and the teacher becomes the focal point? Beautiful things. When I started teaching at a unique school called UniC I finally found a true learning community. Students inspired me to explore new ways and I've never looked back. Soon after the start of flipping my classroom I made a conscious decision to go beyond the concept and give my students even more freedom to learn. This is a story of my inspiration: students, my PLN, the joy of experimenting/learning. I want to share that story and the feeling and inspire people to take bold new steps. (presentation will feature web2.0 tools, including google apps tools)
