Our Students Say...

"You have opened my eyes to a whole new way to run my classroom, a better way for the students to learn."
~ Denise Tufts, Certified Nursing Assistant instructor HS, Greene, Maine

"I thought that I already knew quite a bit about the Flipped Classroom, but I learned so much more, and have already made changes to my class for the better."
~ Emily Bennett, Colora, Maryland

"I needn't limit myself to students watching videos at home and working in small groups in class. Instead, I can assist students in uncovering the concepts outside the classroom and use them in various classroom activities. The variety of possible activities is limitless."
~ Jennifer Belanger, Math Teacher, Douglas, Massachusetts

"I feel using these new ideas and processes will make my classroom a better experience for my students and make me a better instructor. I also shared everything I gained in the course with my small working group. All in all, I feel I learned everything I expected and more. . . what a great feeling of accomplishment.
