flipped classroom webinar

Ditch the Textbook: Health Education in the Flipped Classroom
Date and Time: Wednesday, March 1, 2017 from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
Description: Say "health textbook" and most people think of words like boring, date, ineffective and expensive. How unfortunate because no other school subject deals with more topics considered important to students - feelings, challenges, relationships, decisions, etc. What if health education centered around healthy behavior outcomes (HBOs) instead of drugs, sex, and sushi rolls (nutrition). Can health be a cool class? Absolutely! When the educational experience is student-centered instead of subject-centered, health education is "all about me." Learn how to ditch the textbook in favor of peer-driven, (yet teacher facilitated) environment where students embrace healthy behaviors, not simply health information.
Presenter: Gary Lemke, Connected Educator, Interactive PE
Intended Audience: health educators
Member Price: $0 - FREE to SHAPE America members as part of your membership
Non-Member Price: $19.96
