Integration of Mobile Application in Flipped Classroom for Language Learning

Abstract

The goal of the integration mobile learning into a flipped classroom is to offer a new way of language learning for students and reduce the teacher’s role in the classroom. This new transformation from a conventional teaching and learning approach to heutagogy and paragogy approaches is to meet the criteria for student-centered approach and embracing the differences. This will also promote teachers' creativity in creating teaching and learning materials. "My Speaking App" is designed to match the purpose for a personal use for the speaking skill practices in learning the second language (English) in a non-face-to-face environment. My Speaking App offers a variety of supports to enhance the success for Malaysian language learners in their English communication skills. My Speaking App delivers a personal mentoring from the tutor and intervention strategies related to non-cognitive behavioral practices to ensure language learners are motivated. Embedded within the research is a mix mode approaches, which allows researchers to gather data qualitatively and quantitatively. Language learners responded to a survey after experiencing the flipped classroom learning with the use of the mobile app before they entered the language class for 6 months duration. Analysis of results demonstrated that mobile application was effective in the flipped classroom in supporting students’ lifelong learning especially in language learning.
