10:30–11:45am Use Video to “Flip” Your Classroom
The goal of the classroom flip or reversing the classroom is to use technology to spend more time interacting with students instead of lecturing.

Class time can then be spent on activities that assist students in understanding and course material and applying what they’ve learned.
