Flipped classroom

What is it?

Attempt to define what a flipped classroom is.

Doing activities in class

Lecture is done at home

Learning takes place at home

students will be in front of the computers most of the time

Questions answered in school

After lectures, student can clear their doubts regarding the lecture they saw/heard at home to the teachers, Learning through questioning

Involvement of ICT Tools to communicate knowledge/information to students

A flexible classroom integrated through ICT


Making the students understand more in class rather than stuffing information in the student's head

Homeworks done in classroom



Able to watch as many times as needed

Real-time; students can catch up with the latest ideas shared

Students are able to learn at their own pace, students won't be shy to repeatedly view the videos

Able to watch at their own time and on their own pace., Able to review the topics previously learnt without having to refer to the teacher for help

Have less homework to finish at home, Teachers have less time dealing with students who did not do their homework, Discipline

Some students are quiet and through the platform of ICT, they are able to post as many feedbacks and comments or queries

Fosters mastery of topics/subjects as opposed to just understanding it

Students are able to learn from peers who have shown proficiency in a particular topic

More time for one on one tutoring - benefits students with specific wekanesses

Students who are unable to attend school will not lose out. They are still able to stay on par with peers in terms of curriculum (and more importantly, be able to understand without having to attend class/lecture)

Promotes self-regulated learning


Teachers spend less time catching up on students who missed class

Able to share flipped classroom lectures with colleagues

Able to save time for activities, More on making the students understand rather than feeding the students with chunks of information

Able to track progress of students; thereby able to personally tutor weaker ones

Able to provide support for students in class (especially useful for children that has no one to help them with schoolwork at home)

More productive interaction time with the students


parents are able to be tutors for kids if they are more equipped with the content knowledge

able to monitor progress of child's progress in certain topics

Able to be updated with what their child is learning in "school"

How to flip?


Record videos

Allow students to do e-learning where students are given instructions as to where to obtain the video from

Class blog where the students can find resources for their learning at home

Information to be delivered in class via vodcast

Anything not traditional


Vodcasting, Screencaster

Students to gather questions about the topic learnt and will clarify them in school if they have doubts

Class Wiki

Use online mind mapping tools to explain topics/concepts


Internet Access - Students who do not have internet access could not reap the full benefits of it and may end up losing out in class

Can be quite messy after some time

student learning the wrong knowledge/concept

students might not have internet access at home thus not able to prepare for the lesson in advanced.

Students may not access the links given. Therefore, being unprepared for class.

Students might not watch the videos posted fully. They may skip certain parts if it is a longwinded classroom.

Requires student to exercise great discipline to view the lesson/resources on their own.

Teacher will have to address the students queries individually and this consumes more time. Unless, the teacher comes out with a way to collate the questions and address similar questions as a whole in class.

Not all material is suitable to be taught through a video lesson

Why flip?

Suggest reasons for flipping a classroom.

More student-centred

students can feel ownership towards learning

It saves a lot of time and space furthermore it encourages technology-inclined students to learn

Encourages peer-sharing

students who are proficient in that certain topic can help with the weaker students :)

More hands-on experience. Facilitate learning better.

more human interactions in class

Less teacher fronted in classroom

New node

move away from the traditional classroom setting where students come in with very little knowledge about a certain topic. students can now take ownership of their learning.

In line with the 21st century classroom environment through the usage of ICT --> Less face-to-face interaction

Students have different learning methods. Learning can take place at home, at their own pace and methods

'WWW' (whatever, whenever, wherever)

students can learn at their own pace

Questions, concerns

What questions or concerns do you have about flipping a classroom? What should a teacher do if in class during 'activity time', some students have yet to view the lectures they are supposed to watch at home? (Nadzirah)

What happens after mapping?

What if the students do not understand the lecture and would want the lecture to be carried out in the classroom? (students prefer traditional classroom)

What should a teacher do if by the time they are in class for activity, some of the students have yet to view the flipped classroom lectures at home?

How do the teacher address to the students queries and problems to the homework that they have done? Individually? If it is individual, wouldn't it take a longer time?

How do you apply to teaching language?
