The COVID-19 crisis posed a significant test for European educational systems, compelling governments to swiftly implement changes. The shift to online classes exposed the inflexibility of most EU educational systems, underscoring the necessity for alternative teaching methods.
Teachers, caught off guard by the transition, highlighted the inadequacy of relying solely on self-guided online learning. Research indicates that even in developed countries, higher dropout rates and decreased motivation were observed due to the absence of peer pressure and a structured learning environment.
To tackle these challenges, it is strongly advised to adopt blended-learning models, such as the one examined in a 2015 meta-analysis. Blended learning has proven to be more effective than exclusive face-to-face or online approaches and is well-suited to address the current demands of the labor market. Prioritising application-based and problem-solving-based approaches is crucial for the future advancement of societies.
The FLIPPING project aims to implement the innovative flipped learning model, specifically the flipped classroom approach, for VET learners and new workers. It involves shifting traditional homework activities to home, while learners engage with concepts in the classroom with mentor guidance. The project will develop materials for learners, teachers, and involved parents to enhance the training process.
