TeachFlip began as a project Mike Paul created as an undergraduate at Western Kentucky University. After beginning his teaching career, he worked with other teachers and friends to create professional development that was done by teachers, for teachers, and let teachers walk away from an event with strategies they could use in their classrooms immediately.
Mike saw a need to have a single destination for PD that was delivered in video format so that teachers could access it anytime, anywhere. He also saw an opportunity for teachers to be creators and share the great things they were doing in their classes so that others could implement in their own classrooms, schools, and districts.
TeachFlip will curate and create a library of video content for teachers to easily access. In the future, we will offer teachers the opportunity to create their own videos on topics chosen by the TeachFlip community through monthly contests. For teachers that have never created videos, we will offer training on getting started and improving your videos with advanced editing, scripting, and training with multiple video creation tools.
Our long-term goals include providing a training center for schools and districts that provide analytics and integrated assessments that administrators can use to train their staff members through video, allowing time for face-to-face staff meetings to become more engaging, collaborative, and productive as school teams work together to make their schools Innovation Centers to train the next generation of world leaders.
