The Flipped Classroom and Art Education: A Study in a Computer Based Visual Art Classroom
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to find out how flipped teaching impacts learning in an eighth grade Art and Computer Design elective. Over the course of three fifty-minute sessions, two similar classes were taught the same unit. One class was taught with traditional teacher-led instruction and the other accessing a web hosted classroom, online tutorials, and course content prior to and through the duration of the unit. The findings of this study indicated that, in the researcher’s classroom, flipped teaching in a computer based studio art class makes time for increased one-on-one student to teacher interaction, individualization of course content and pace, and greater student independence and satisfaction. This research provides evidence that flipped learning could successfully be applied in a visual arts context.
