Since the introduction of technology into education, teachers have been looking for ways to effectively integrate it into their teaching practices. The effective integration of technology can be a powerful strategy to ensure highly engaging and interactive face-to-face STEM learning environments occur.

Blended learning and flipped learning are two pedagogical approaches that employ quite similar features—including their adaptability to online learning contexts. As STEM teaching and learning requires the cohesive blend of subject matter from multiple disciplines alongside engaging and active classroom experiences, the exploration of both pedagogical approaches can be extremely useful for STEM teachers.

This session will explore the differences between blended and flipped learning and how teachers can maximize the benefits of each in their STEM classrooms. The workshop is designed for Year 5–12 teachers of STEM and its associated disciplines.

Through the Education Perfect (EP) platform, the workshop will showcase the tools that EP provides to support both pedagogical approaches. Participants will have an opportunity to explore EP through the eyes of a student and become familiar with the different tools that it has to offer including those for differentiation and real-time reporting.

Participants will be able to register for a free EP account to explore the tools with their students.
