University of Hawaii
Yasmin Saban was born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii where she attended St. Andrew’s Priory School. Yasmin received her BA in Pure and Applied Mathematics from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. She is currently enrolled in the ETEC Master’s Program at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Last year, Yasmin returned to the Priory to teach Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1. Working in a school with a one-to-one laptop program and an amazing technology department gave her the opportunity to explore new technologies and teaching strategies with her students. After quickly realizing the benefits of flipped teaching, she shared her experiences with other teachers in various educational technology conferences. Yasmin has spent the past year finishing her degree while creating instructional materials for flipped classroom teachers. For her final master’s project, she chose to create a flipped classroom instructional module for K-12 teachers.
Presenter for the Following Session
- The Flipped Classroom Instructional Module
The creation of electronic instructional materials has suggested that learning is no longer restricted to the confines of a traditional classroom. In the Flipped Classroom Model instruction occurs at home while class time is used to work on applying the material with the assistance of the instructor. While forms of this model have been used for decades, new technologies have made this method of instruction increasingly popular.
