In this study, teacher incorporates gamification; an interactive, practical and fun approach in her English lesson; in which she uses many apps available both online and offline. All the activities / gamification; then will be assigned to the students via Frog VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) as the main platform. Teacher creates a student-centred learning in where the students are the main user of the technology while the teacher uses it to promote blended learning. The action research also aimed to explore how a teacher uses technology in the classroom and make her students ready for the 21st century demands. Teacher and students use Frog VLE in their English classroom, then associated it in their everyday life’s (flipped classroom).
