Bradley Lightbody will also be delivering a Keynote Address: Applying Flipped Learning at the Digital Learning Fellowship Dissemination Event on the 15th January 2016.

Flipped learning accelerates learning by flipping ‘lower order’ factual information gathering out of the classroom and reserving the classroom for ‘higher order’ application and analysis. A flipped classroom can motivate, fully engage and present multiple opportunities to embed English, Maths and employability skills. This presentation will address:

  • Learning expectations of Generation Z
  • Curriculum planning for the 21st century
  • Using Learning plans to experiment with Flipped learning
  • Satisfying Ofsted 2015 criteria for support and challenge
