NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Channel One, LLC, the educational video content provider and producer of Channel One News, today announced it will participate in Flipped Learning Network's Flipped Day on September 6, 2013.
Based on a 2012 Flipped Learning Network survey conducted by the Speak Up National Research Project, only an estimated 3% of teachers in the U.S. know about – or participate in – flipped learning. However, 27% of principals indicated that their teachers want to integrate flipped learning into their daily lesson plans. On Flipped Day, hosted by the Flipped Learning Network, educators around the world will take a pledge to flip one lesson, with the hope that this will lead to further flipped units and courses.
Channel One News will offer its daily video content and premium Common Core State Standards (CCSS)-aligned activities to educators free of charge from August 21st – September 10th. In addition to the daily video, Channel One News will give participants access to a new set of highly engaging, relevant non-fiction instructional materials tied to each day's show.
Channel One News Chief Executive Officer, CJ Kettler, said, "We are really excited to participate in Flipped Learning Network's inaugural Flipped Day. Our daily video broadcast is the perfect tool to enable authentic learning, tied to the news and real world events, in a flipped classroom environment.
