This presentation discusses the implementation of flipped learning utilizing accessible and affordable technology.

Drawing from over four decades of teaching children in one school and working with all kinds of people throughout the world, Doug will share his vision of what lies at the heart of the matter: a pedagogy that trains the body, awakens the senses, cultivates the mind, unleashes the imagination and opens the heart, all within the circle of a musical community. Come prepared to play, sing and dance your way into a feeling of belonging, of connection, of challenge, of determination to work yet harder to help children create a world worthy of our humanitarian promise.
