Break the traditional classroom because it is a student-oriented teaching classroom; Create flipped micro-lessons, it is a new form of teaching in the interchange of roles; Students can take advantage of their digital strengths to create learning materials, and micro-lesson production can be realized from the student's perspective; In the process of revising the micro-lesson, students and teachers can communicate and collaborate with each other, and they achieve the complementary strengths of abilities.
