Hultén, Magnus; Larsson, Bo
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v62 n3 p433-443 2018
The aim of this study is to contribute to an increased understanding of the flipped classroom movement. A total of 7 teachers working in school years 4-9 and who both actively flipped their classrooms and had been early adopters in this movement were interviewed. Two research questions were posed: "What characterizes flipped classroom instruction according to the teachers?" and "What objectives do the flipped classroom meet according to the teachers?" Regarding the first research question, a characteristic of a flipped classroom was "the flip," a task to be accomplished outside the classroom before class. In relation to the second research question we found three objectives: Student activity in class; Educational change; Being part of a digital learning community.
