Abstract

This research study discusses the efficiency and benefits of establishing flipped learning in the Hong Kong primary school context. The discussion is supported by the data collected through visiting a targeted local primary school, interviewing local primary school teachers and lesson observations. In overall, flipped learning benefits Hong Kong students and teachers and can raise the efficiency of teaching and learning. It provides opportunities for individualized learning pace, knowledge extension and better learning environment. In addition, it allows teachers to better understand students’ learning gaps and misconception, and enhance the efficiency of lessons. However, catering for the uniqueness of Hong Kong primary school context, modifications have to be made in order to maximize the benefits and efficiency of flipped learning. A non-complete flipping is adopted in the targeted school to cater for the learners’ differences in age, ability and interests. Furthermore, parental support and praising students are the essential factors to maximize the efficiency of flipped learning.
