Get Flipped

Using Learning Technologies to Engage Student Learning (First Edition)
Giovanna Follo

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-5165-0656-9, 142 pages

©2018

Description
Get Flipped: Using Learning Technology to Engage Student Learning gives instructors ideas about general apps, forms of technology, and technological resources they can use to create assignments that get students excited about what they are learning.

The book introduces ways to use video logging as a writing tool. It explains how to use popular sites and apps, such as Pinterest and Instagram, as tools for viewing a community, and examines how Myfitnesspal can be used to explore intersectionality in the social sciences. Each exercise has been developed to enhance critical thinking, information selection, and concept application. In addition, the book features three expanded assignments from special contributors which can be used in more involved projects.

In a world where technology is an increasingly important aspect of life and education, the applications and activities will resonate with educators and students alike. All ideas and exercises can easily be adapted to different disciplines, topics, and levels. Get Flipped is an excellent resource for any teacher who wants to implement the most current technology to foster student engagement.
