Abstract

The infusion of technology into education is commonplace in the 21st century. In view of the advanced technology, the latest Hong Kong General Studies (GS) curriculum has also made good use of multimedia for developing e-Learning in which Flipped Classroom (FC) is one of the teaching approaches. This research aims to assess the readiness of Hong Kong General Studies teachers in adopting FC by employing the three direct determinants in Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model. The research findings have been separated into four parts for discussions, including (1) the overall readiness of Hong Kong GS teachers in adopting FC, (2) the most influential direct determinant, (3) the relationship between direct determinants and moderating variables and (4) their degree of intention to adopt FC in future teaching. 82 valid questionnaires were eventually collected from teachers who are currently teaching GS in Hong Kong primary schools. Some recommendations were addressed to improve the readiness of teachers. The results of this research would be valuable to Hong Kong education sector for assessing teachers’ acceptance towards the adaptation of FC.
