Abstract: An international collaboration between a Chinese Visiting Scholar and faculty at a US College of Education provided the opportunity to share, investigate and evaluate a flipped classroom model that endeavors to make the best use of in-class time. By focusing on project-based spiraling curriculum, where students practice everyday classroom teacher tasks, the researchers were able to identify and define a modified flipped classroom model that focuses on in-class development of technology integration understandings and skills through hands-on practice for these preservice teachers. This paper will; a) provide a brief historical background and foundation for the flipped classroom, and b) provide evaluation data of a technology integration course that was designed in a modified flipped classroom approach to take advantage of in class time to increase student-centered engagement in a teacher preparation course.
