With flipped learning, the classroom becomes available to students outside of the normal teaching timetable with content (videos, lesson recordings and content developed by the students and teacher) available at any time. This encourages independent learning and critical thinking skills with students able to set their own pace for learning, pause a lesson recording to carry out extra research and manage their own learning time which is an essential skill to learn. Students are able to take quality notes during their lessons, knowing that they can go back and watch the lesson recording to fill in any gaps afterwards. This encourages fantastic study skills as well as deep engagement in the lessons. Students come to lessons well prepared, having carried out set reading and self-study before class, enabling the teacher to deliver personalised learning in the lessons, supporting those who need more help with the content and stretching those who need more.
