Simon Lim (from Singapore)

I feel that Flipped Learning doesn’t apply just between teacher and students, trainer and trainees. I think it is highly applicable to the context of parents ¬†and kids. In the world of the 21st century we are seeing a digital divide created by technology. So the question here is how can we overcome this gap in parenting by embracing flipped learning?


Benjamin Stewart (from Mexico)

What types of policies or practices can you recommend when thinking about a creative commons license that would apply to any type of content generated from either a student or a teacher. I’m thinking in terms of higher education but this would apply for K-12 as well.


Elizabeth Cruz (from Mexico)

I was wondering if you could share with me some assessment tools for flipped classroom activities. I know that there could be tonnes, but some general criteria or sample rubrics with checklists etc. could help. There are times when assessment in this context becomes a bit tricky due to all the factors involved in an activity such as interaction patterns for example. I really appreciate any help that you can provide.
