The knowledge society requires greater connectivity between individuals and communities. Becoming indispensable for the development of all human activities, the new information and communication technologies are increasingly encountered in the educational practice. Essentially, "flipping the classroom" means that the students are initially exposed to new materials outside the classroom, usually by presenting informational content or videos and then use their time in the classroom to do the harder work, assimilating this knowledge by solving problems, discussions or debates. Starting from the specificity of the flipped classroom, we have proposed to test the views of the students enrolled in the Department of Teacher Training of the University of Craiova, on this subject. By applying an opinion questionnaire, we obtained information about two indicators we referred to: the extent to which the students know the characteristics of the flipped classroom and their attitude regarding the implementation of this approach. For a better "radiography," we turned to the SWOT Analysis and disseminated the resulted information in order to implement this form of mixed learning in the activities with the students of the Faculty of Sciences, enrolled in the module of psycho-pedagogical training.
