IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW LEARNING TECHNOLOGIES IN TECHNICAL EDUCATION. CASE STUDY - EXPERIMENTING THE FLIPPED CLASSROOM METHOD IN A VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT

Interactive learning where students actively participate in discussions or learning to solve problems has become more commonplace in recent years at the expense of classical teaching. Today, the focus is more and more on innovation in education.

The use of new technologies for education is widely recognized, becoming today a preoccupation present at all levels of education: curriculum and teaching practice, teacher training, and their implementation in the education system for students.

Existing educational software optimizes the teaching-learning process and e-learning platforms are new ways of interconnecting between teacher and students during or off course hours, with the benefit of immediate feedback.

Thus, faculty seeks opportunities to increase student engagement, integrate more technologies, enhance and improve learning outcomes.
The present paper implements and analyses the effects of the Flipped Classroom method in teaching the "Road Infrastructure" discipline using the Google Classroom virtual platform.

By using this method, students are introduced to content at home by following the practical part in the lab. This would give students access to tutorials, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, movies, and more. Also, during classroom classes, the teacher would facilitate the learning process through discussions and debates and encourage students to work in the course materials individually and in groups.

The present study was conducted between October-November 2018 on 24 respondents from the 3rd year program “Transport and traffic engineering”, analyzing students' receptivity to something new, student teacher interaction, and engagement in the learning process
The main goal was to cultivate learning experiences, including collaborative learning, project-based learning, collaborative learning peer-learning, and real-world problem solving.

Thus, by implementing this method, students' motivation for their own training has increased, even if at first they were little reluctant to use a virtual space.
