Teachers are the change-makers, creating a direct impact in student’s life. They work to inspire, educate and to create a positive change through teaching. But, do our students realize the value of teaching and engage in the learning process? Living in a gadget-filled world, students are no longer interested in the traditional form of learning. ‘Flipped Learning’ is a concept wherein digital technologies are used to shift direct instruction outside of the group learning space to individual learning space usually via videos. An innovation in the field of education helps the teachers to involve in a face-to-face interaction with the students. Also, students get more time to collaborate with teachers and peers directly, engaging more deeply with the content, practicing the necessary skills and receiving instant feedback. This conceptual research paper embarks upon to review the literatures of how this ‘flip learning model’ has gained the acceptance of the student community thus bringing a greater control over their learning. Various research studies has revealed that this technological driven innovation – ‘Flipped Learning ’has provided the students an opportunity to explore topics in great depth during the class time by deliberately shifting monotonous teaching to participatory learning.
