Enriching literacy learning with mobile devices in a flipped classroom
Abstract: Learners may benefit through learning in a flipped classroom. However, provided enriched learning resources before class is only one part of the learning experience. It is the enhanced learning experiences that learners have during and after class. The arrangement of the classroom environment can contribute to the process by facilitating the opportunities for and types of peer interaction. When learning critical literacy in university, students may be exposed to various resources, and they may not be given enough time to analyse print scripts or in a multimedia environment. There is an emerging need for students to use digital devices to better prepare them to demonstrate their understanding of concepts and a platform for learners to show progressive growth in cognitive capabilities. This paper reports on critical factors contributing to an enriched and enhanced learning experience through the redesign of both learning spaces and the curriculum when running a flipped classroom.
