Embracing Nonlinearity in a Flipped Setting
Countless apps and tools present material to the user (students and teachers) as a list. Prime examples of this linearity is a Google search, your bookmarks, and a curated class set up in Schoology. What this does is introduce an artificial priority set up by whoever made the list. Who really has gone to the 10th page of a Google search to find valuable information? But presenting material to students in a linear format may be unintentionally valuing certain topics over others. Embracing nonlinearity in unit, lesson, or assignment presentation causes our students to think more deeply about the connections that they should make and those connections can be more important than the content itself. Combine nonlinearity with flipped learning and this could be a powerful tool for those looking for the "next level flip"

So You Flipped? Now for the Fun Part!
Flipping your instruction is just the beginning, the best part of the flip is what you do with the class time you always wished you had. Collaboration, more frequent and fun formative assessment, student exploration, personal interaction, all leading to student presentation and creation as a measure of learning all within the confines of Flipped Class 101. See examples, and share examples, of class time use and student created content. Flipping instruction is just the first step to flipping how you see learning and how learning happens in your classroom.

Synchronous Mastery for Content Heavy Classes
Asynchronous Mastery has been a hot topic for a number of years. Unfortunately there are many advanced classes and content heavy classes with requirements that make it challenging to allow students the freedom to work completely at their own pace. Synchronous mastery allows teachers to incorporate valuable components of mastery learning into their curriculum while still maintaining the pace needed to complete the course successfully. Teachers who are new to mastery learning can also use synchronous mastery as an entry point. In this session we will work together to develop strategies and design a framework to help others implement a synchronous mastery approach.
