Wilmington, MA, November 30, 2016– This week, Wilmington Middle School Computer Literacy Specialist Carol Trulli and Technology Integration Specialist Brenda Lomanno presented at the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference in Manchester, New Hampshire. Their workshop was called "Flipped Learning - Shake It Up!".
In the workshop, participants were able to explore some free online tools to create class lessons to effectively flip their classroom for teaching and student learning. Participants learned how to leave the lectures behind freeing up time to work on student-created projects, promote discussion, and improve achievement.
Christa McAuliffe was the New Hampshire "teacher in space" astronaut who died in the Challenger shuttle launch on January 28th, 1986. In Christa's memory and in keeping with her spirit this conference is designed to highlight the sharing of successful technology practices among educators. The conference serves as a forum for exchanging technology-based success stories, integration tips, instructional strategies, technical solutions, and management techniques, that really work in the learning environment.
