English language teaching (ELT) has always been the subject to innovations, particularly alongside the advances in technology. In the digital era the range of technologies available for use in language learning and teaching has become very diverse and the task of a teacher is to choose and adapt the ones that might cause positive effect on the leaning/teaching outcomes. There have been large increases in innovative pedagogic practices in areas such as personalization of teaching, developing lf-study skills and learner autonomy. The flipped learning model of instruction has become normative practice among many university language instructors. This innovative teaching approach does not have a universal definition but generally refers to using digital technologies, especially videos in order to shift direct learning out of the large group learning space and move it into the individual learning space (N. Hamdan and P.McKnight et al). Although Flipped Learning is often compared to online, blended, and distance learning there are clear differences due to the emphasis on students becoming the agents of their own learning rather than the object of instruction. Thus, the Flipped Learning model can enable educators to make the shift from teacher-driven instruction to student-centered learning. The article describes the experience of using free digital platform Edmodo in flipping the ESL classroom for learner autonomy.
