  • จินตวีร์ คล้ายสังข์ Chulalongkorn University




This article aims to present CU Flipped Smart system or CUFS, a learning process innovation developed from the research titled Smart Technology for Flipped Classroom to Enhance 21st Century Skills in Life and Career Skills for Higher Education Learners. CUFS was the integration between smart technology and flipped Learning concepts to create learning with smart technology for flipped classroom to enhance 21st century skills in life and career skills of leaners. The article proposes conceptual framework and theories which are the foundation for developing this innovation including cognitive constructivism, social constructivism, and self-regulated learning. Then, the article presents the highlight of the innovation that focuses on responsive design to enable the system to be used with different mobile devices according to Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) concept. Gamification concept was also used to enhance the system to challenge digital learners. The last part of this article shows the conclusion of the research that developed the innovation. It was designed and developed based on R&D research process to be a guideline for applying in the actual context effectively and create the utmost effectiveness for higher education learners.
