This is the active learning event you’ve been waiting for …

  • Discover how you can enable active learning with the use of video in your primary or secondary classroom
  • Rapidly increase your understanding, skills, experience and know-how
  • Learn how active learning successfully increases student engagement and achievement
  • Work closely with Australia’s active learning expert, Jeremy LeCornu from Seaview High School (SA), and other experienced Australian educators who are making it happen and achieving outstanding results

As a proven method to increase student engagement and results, using video to enable active learning makes sense in today’s digital classroom. In a flipped classroom, the student does the lower level (easier) learning individually, and utilises class time for higher level thinking, rich collaboration and maximised learning.

“Teaching is a creative profession - Not a delivery system. Great Teachers do pass on information, but what great Teachers also do is… Mentor, Stimulate, Provoke and Engage.” - Sir Ken Robinson
