The easiest way to introduce Flipd to your students is to include it in your syllabus as a class-wide expectation or to outline that Flipd use will go toward participation points. Our research has shown that when Flipd is included as part of their participation grade, 98% of students are willing to opt in.
We also recommend that instructors engage in a discussion with their students about multi-tasking and distractions in the digital age. It's important that they know that you are not "policing" smartphone use, and that using Flipd is a way for students to recognize and become more conscious of their behavior. Attached are some excellent articles and studies that you can find to help frame your discussion.
We also encourage instructors to download and use the documents listed in our Instruction Materials folder to seamlessly integrate Flipd into your classroom.
