A Study on the Application of the Flipped Classroom in the Mathematics Curriculum of the Primary Teacher Education Program
This study aimed to explore the effectiveness and difficulties of applying the flipped classroom to the common mathematics course of the primary teacher education program, and seek the solutions to the problems during the teaching process. It was an action research comprised of one semester teaching activities. The subjects were 18 primary teacher education students who took the common mathematics course of the primary teacher education program. The data resources included learning journals, learning feedback sheets, and reflection journals. The findings were: 1. The major difficulty of implementing the flipped classroom was that teachers had to spend plenty of time making video lectures. 2. The flipped classroom teaching model was beneficial for students in the following ways: (1) It helped individualized adaptive learning and self-regulated learning. (2) It could effectively help students to overcome the difficulties, enhance their efficiency and ability, and build up their confidence in terms of problem-solving. (3) It could increase students’ learning interest and encourage them to reflect on their learning methods.
