CHICAGO, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Flipped Learning Global Initiative (FLGI), a worldwide coalition of educators, researchers, technologists, professional development providers and education leaders, kicked off the Flipped Learning 3.0 Global Tour at the ASCD National Conference. The worldwide tour was organized to update the education community on the five factors that signal the start of a new era in Flipped Learning.
The five key indicators identified are:
Awareness that Flipped Learning is a dynamic, not static, instructional model that is rapidly changing
Recognition that Flipped Learning is evolving in unexpected ways because of increased research, classroom innovations and advances in technology
The emergence of Flipped Learning as a global movement
A new awareness about the scope, impact and implications of Flipped Learning
Expanding global demand for skilled Flipped Learning professionals
In February, FLGI Researchers, Fellows and Master Teachers confirmed the findings of the 12-month project that identified the paradigm shift.

The tour officially begins on Saturday in California at the ASCD exhibition and includes stops in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Taiwan, China, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, India and selected cities across the United States.
"The ground underneath Flipped Learning is shifting," said Jon Bergmann, FLGI's Chief Academic Officer and leader of the Flipped Learning 3.0 World Tour. "The research, hard data, anecdotes and opinions of well-informed professionals have confirmed that Flipped Learning has entered a new stage. The future of Flipped Learning will be very different from the past."
