Flipped classroom is a specific form of blended learning, where, in contrast to the traditional model, students are required to prepare prior to the class (with reading, self-study or other online asynchronous activities) and then bring their knowledge, questions and ideas for a group discussion, lecture or, hands-on training session. This method allows students to develop critical thinking and apply knowledge into practice. The flipped classroom model promotes the integration of independent learning and the use of technology outside the classroom and more efficient student–teacher interactions in the classroom.
