Moreover, this allows students to determine their own learning pace and develop individual teaching strategies. Another advantage of «flipped learning» technology is the ability to use more class time for group activities, where students can discuss the content of the lecture, check their knowledge and interact with each other in an interactive mode that promotes the development of their practical skills.

Each stage requires not only student's but also teacher's activity, who have to develop additional training or control materials for classes. The authors have analyzed the advantages and difficulties of applying «flipped learning» technology in higher education institutions. The article outlines the features of «flipped learning» in high school (the expediency of its use in senior courses, low awareness of this technology, lack of time and the need for some adaptation to its application, low technical readiness of teachers to «flipped learning» technology) and describes the experience of using this technology in the practice of teaching «High School Pedagogy» subject for students of the Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi Hryhorii Skovoroda State Pedagogical University.
