The flipped classroom has been defined as a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of the course are reversed. Students study some basic contents before class, and the increased class time is used as an opportunity to deal with mixed levels, students difficulties, and differentiated learning styles.
Flipped classroom is not only an innovative method to make the most of in class time; it is also particularly suitable for online lessons. Students are exposed to content before the online session, which can be used for discussion and debate, to boost both engagement and learning retention.
