With the constant advancements of the 21st century in every field, education has become at the forefront of innovation. In addition to the introduction of technology in the classroom, teaching models and pedagogies are also under constant revision. One of the most popular innovative models is the “flipped classroom” approach. The flipped classroom model entails that instructors reverse the traditional presentation methods of classic teaching away from what instructors are saying to focusing on how students are learning and retaining knowledge through an increased focus on student-centred discussions and the utilization of technology. This article presents a pragmatic view of technology-assisted flipped classroom model in the context of higher education. This qualitative case study research is based on insights and data collected during an undergraduate college-level course at a college of education, specifically, a teacher preparation course. Student feedback and evaluations were collected and analyzed as data sets to assess the utilization of such a model in a higher education context. The results show some important aspects of the flipped classroom which delivered promising results, especially with the use of specific technology tools increasing student voice and facilitating self-assessment, therefore, self-tracking.
