Abstract
Innovation ability training is the main goal of talent cultivation in China. Firstly, in view of the deficiency in the traditional teaching mode, based on literature analysis and existing research, this article explored the key factors that can affect the innovation ability, which includes the self-exploration consciousness, self-exploration strategy, cooperation ability, time management ability and volition. Secondly, through the practice of flipped classroom in the public computer course of the university, this research used two scales—the LASSI scale and CUCEI scale to carry out pre-test and post-test; through the measurement data contrast, analyzed the influence of the flip classroom teaching mode of learners. Empirical research method was used to analyze the important role of flipped classroom in cultivating students' innovation ability. Then, the study found that the students in the experimental class had a great improvement in their independent exploration consciousness, independent exploration strategies and volition. Moreover, flipped classroom has different effects on learners of high levels and low levels, and the proportion of high score students and low score students in the experimental class was significantly higher than that in the control class. Finally, aiming at the problems in flipped classroom teaching practice, the teaching process, teaching activities, effective control strategies and the suggestions to teachers of flipped classroom were summarized to provide references for high-quality flipped classroom teaching design.
