Flip Classroom
· Flip classroom used as reverse instruction and the benefits.
· I will demonstrate how the students contributed in creating the instructional videos all in connection to the curriculum. (They were on French grammatical rules)
· They created them using “SCREEN-CAST -O -MATIC” and the SmartBoard

Apps used in classrooms…how to set them up and how they are used.
· REMIND (great communication tool used by administrators and teachers for parents and students).
· Book Creator (a great and fun way for students to create their own ebooks with colorful images).
· ClassDojo (great way for teachers to keep their students and parents informed on lessons, homework…also used as a communication tool)
· Kahoot (making learning fun with this interactive app for teachers and students…adding videos, images, and diagrams to questions to amplify engagement)
· Pole everywhere (allows you to transform one-way presentations into a lively conversation with the entire class)
