A Spanish Inverted Classroom: Students’ Perceptions and Implications for Teachers
This paper assesses the technical, aesthetic and educational quality of the educational materials created in a Spanish inverted classroom and identifies key elements to successfully design an inverted classroom.
The results can help teachers interested in this methodology to select the necessary tools to create high-quality digital educational materials as well as to understand the technical skills necessary to develop them. Using an evaluation research design, this study followed the impact of the Inverted Classroom Model on a group of students. Participants appreciated the technical, aesthetic and educational quality of the course materials and found that they could not only participate in the course more actively, but also acquire a regular and productive working routine. The results indicate that foreign language teachers have to adopt a new and more complex role in the 21st century classroom.
