Phil is Education Director at Verso Learning.
Keynote Address 21 August 2015 – Making learning irresistible
Summary and thank you.
Phil thank you for presenting an alternative response to Flipped Learning. May be it’s not an alternative response though – in your words what you had to say is probably better expressed as a cautionary tale.
A cautionary tale drawn from the work of some of the best educational thinkers in the world (November, Fullan, Hattie and Dweck).
You have demonstrated well that there is no one way to flip a class – as you say there are 50 shades of flip.
I really like your idea of what I call an alternative resource to flip the learning.
- Developing content to provoke and activate learning
- Allowing talking, sharing, a multitude of voices and hypothesising and then
- Analysing the spontaneous student response or voice
- To inform the next provocation.
Phil with your range of quality ideas and passion for learning you have certainly helped us to flip our thinking.
