Flipping the Art Room

Flipping the Art Room

Follow proven K-12 art educator examples to confidently implement procedures and activities that model the flipped classroom approach.

Flipped classrooms are an engaging learning approach that promotes student autonomy, has inherent differentiated instruction, and allows the students to take more ownership of their learning. K-12 art educator case studies will guide the learning for relevant and immediate applicability to participants’ art classrooms. Throughout this course, participants will apply the strategies learned to create and implement real classroom activities that model the flipped classroom approach.
