As an MYP interested school we are introducing MYP-style Technology classes. This video was produced to help "flip" our classroom. Students can view this (or the YouTube or Vimeo versions) elsewhere in order to spend more time in class actually creating, collaborating and working in an environment with other learners with access to a knowledgeable"expert".
