Abstract

Nowadays, the rapid development of information technology provides a great support for Flipped classroom. We introduce the features of Peer Instruction (PI) and a social network APP which is named Wechat and its public platform. We introduce how to apply Wechat into classroom teaching by building a mixed Flipped classroom teaching mode based on PI with Wechat public platform. We take Computer Network Experiment course of Taizhou University as an example to illustrate the practice process. The feedback and investigation result indicate that this new Flipped classroom teaching mode can improve students’ participation in the classroom activities and arouse students’ interest in study. Students have thought highly of this new teaching mode.
