teaching method innovations

10 September 2019

New advances in the field of education have led to the appearance of new methodological resources that make it possible to carry out teaching and learning processes in line with the educational demands of the information and knowledge society. One of the most successful approaches in the field of education is flipped learning. In order to implement this, it is vital that teachers be digitally competent, especially with certain skills in the area relating to the creation of digital resources, so that they can integrate a techno-pedagogical element in their teaching activities. The aim of this study is to ascertain the influence of teachers’ competence levels in area 3 of digital competence (creation of digital content) on the use of the innovative flipped learning methodology. To this end, a research design based on a descriptive and correlational quantitative method was used. An ad hoc questionnaire was used as a data collection instrument and was applied to a sample of 483 Spanish teachers. The results show that teachers make sporadic use of flipped learning. The results also show that teachers have an intermediate competence level in digital content creation, with the teachers who use flipped learning the most having better skills in programming, development, integration and re-elaboration of digital content, and knowledge of copyright and digital licenses. Therefore, we conclude that the level of digital competence in area 3 does have an influence on the use of this innovative teaching and learning methodology.
