Abstract

Educational Technology is an applied study which aims at maximizing learning by making use of the scientific and technological method and concepts developed in other social service. “Educational technology is the application of scientific knowledge about learning and conditions learning to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of teaching and learning.”Four Pillars of Flipped Learning Flipped Learning Consists Of Four Pillars: Flexible Environment, learning the culture, intentional content, and Professional educators. Flipped Learning F-L-I-PFlexible Environment Learning Culture Intentional Content Professional Educators. Flipping a classroom is one of the recent methods which requires teachers’ recording the lesson and students’ watching the recordings before coming to the classroom to spend the class time with the activities. As teachers do not deliver the lecture in the class, more time can be allocated to active learning activities. The flipped classroom is “a teaching method that delivers lecture content to students at home through electronic means and uses class time for practical application activities, may be useful for information literacy instruction.” That means that there is much more use of technology for Flipped Learning. The objectives of the study were: to study the effectiveness of Flipped classroom instruction upon the teaching of Chemistry at the Higher secondary level. Findings: The means of pre-test scores and post-test scores of experimental groups differ significantly (0.01 level) with the post-test mean being higher than the pretest mean. The implication of that is that the level of acquiring of the basic skills in Chemistry has not increased due to the traditional method in the Control group and the Flipped classroomInstructional Method in Experimental group. The post-test scores of the control and experimental group differ significantly. The means score of the experimental group is greater than of the control group.
