In order to facilitate active learning, we tried an experiment in two beginning level classes of Italian and Spanish, using the Flipped Learning Approach and testing students with short pre-lecture quizzes. Students were tasked with reviewing new material before class and completed a short quiz to test their understanding of new material prior to the start of class. Student disposition and performance data were collected on a regular basis. Results highlighted that technology provides effective tools for enhancing
students’ interest in and outside the classroom, as well as valuable learning opportunities for both students and professors.
