Flipped Learning - a Disaster!

Flipped classrooms - this is a course I did as PD a couple of years ago, thought it a real good idea, a concept with a lot of merit, but when I tried to implement it to my Year 11 Software Design class, "horror" was on their faces, but we don't do homework, we only have some boring homework to do. I tried to tell them this is not "really" homework, but it's also been made to be more informative and hopefully more interesting, opening up more they told me this, "we haven't had any other class do this, so why should we do something we are not used to". 


This happened the next year in my next year 11 class, so, I, with sad face, dumped my idea of a good way of teaching. 


Any thoughts or ideas on how you may get Flipped Learning more into the mainstream of this school would be ideal.
