The importance of social and emotional learning has become a mainstream tenet at the same time that technology advancements have reached the classroom. One such advancement, the flipped classroom, has turned the modern classroom upside down with significant results in academic and other achievements. This paper reviews the literature surrounding the flipped classroom and examines how the flipped classroom would be an appropriate vehicle for social and emotional learning, especially in the case of shy students. A review of the literature shows that social and emotional learning can be developed and enhanced by employing certain strategies. The literature also supports progress in shy students as their social and emotional skills are exercised. This paper discovered that several of the ideal interventions for promoting social and emotional learning, and thereby helping shy students, are also essential to the flipped classroom. In light of the relevant research this paper suggests that the flipped classroom would be an appropriate vehicle for social and emotional learning, especially as an intervention for the shy student.
