Get Students Involved Flip the Classroom to Teach Microsoft® Office - Course Technology Computing Conference

Presenter: Teri Donat, San Francisco University

Come learn how I flipped the classroom from lecture/demonstration to engaging students in the learning process by involving them in projects and activities. Learn how I use video, interactive learning software (SAM), web resources and the textbook for student learning outside of the classroom. See activities used in the classroom that have students demonstrating and sharing with fellow classmates what they have learned. This style of teaching has resolved issues of diversity in computer literacy, hardware (Mac vs. PC) and software version differences by encouraging students to explore and discover Microsoft Office features. In the workplace, employees encounter different versions and applications of Microsoft Office. By flipping the classroom, students learn a strategy that helps them to solve problems they encounter when using Microsoft Office.
