Firstly, the flipped learning initiative heavily relies on student preparation. In flipped learning, students have to take responsibility for their learning, without the assistance or supervision of a teacher. This may become a problem if students do not take an initiative in their learning. In my experience, some students may use a system such as this to evade school work, leading to a backlog of unlearnt material. This would become a hassle for teachers as they would have to ensure their students are actually learning at home and not cheating the system. Could you have peace of mind knowing your child or students could easily evade work?

The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures are viewed by students at home before the class session, while in-class time is devoted to exercises, projects, or discussions. If we see the benefits of flipped learning it reduces the time of any particular child.Students can focus their mind more on pratical knowledge then theoritical concept . The main importance of flipped learning is that student can collabrate in online disccusion with many teachers and can do research at home also.Generally flipped vidoes are preperd by the professionals hired from the universities which is the dream for every children of the world. Thus its also helping to clarify the concepts of the particular child.

Second, Flipped Learning could be very difficult for teachers to manage, adding to their workload. Although you may argue material is made by University's, teachers still have to review the material and are sometimes required to make extra material for students that are either struggling or well ahead of other class members. A survey by the BBC found that secondary school teachers were working an average of 55 hours a week. 21.5% of this time was spent outside of the classroom before 8am or after 6pm. Flipped learning would add to the hours teachers are already working due to additional time and effort required to record each individual lesson. Teachers would also need to be highly organised and make sure all material is prepared well ahead of classes. For those unfamiliar or inexperienced with the technology, this would compound the issue further. Flipped Learning would without a doubt worsen working conditions and lifestyle for teachers.

Second,if we use flipped learning technology or using presentations in the class that will not only help to students but also to the teachers. It will definitely helps them to reduce their work load.Ordinary teaching process also bores to students they star bunking the class due to less interest. If they show animation and some useful presentations that will help student to learn quickly.As we all know we enjoy watching movies not the novels from which the story has bee taken.Flipped classroom also helps someone who are suffering from disabilities they can refer it their place also at anytime in any way they want

Third, the Flipped Learning strategy runs the risk of adverse health outcomes for students. Students would spend more time indoors on their computers instead of being active in the outdoors. A study conducted be the Australian Government department of National Health and Medical Research Council in 2007 found that 1 on 4 children aged 2 " 16 were overweight or obese and that figure is expected to grow. The department also found around 60% of adults in 2011-2012 were overweight or obese. Children spending more time on computers will definitely add to the expected increase in obesity among children and long term complications associated with obesity, such as heart disease. This would in turn entail increased governmental expenditure in public health promotion and healthcare funding.

In high school, I had a teacher that would not teach, just hand out worksheets. She would become angry when we did not know the answers, and we did not know what to study.
Also, in this day and age, the teachers expect the students to learn from the laptops. They sit back and stop teaching (some of the teachers don't.)
