Students Use Technology To Flip A Normal Art Museum Field Trip

Hoping to spark creativity and give students a real taste of the artistic process, art teachers from 16 high schools across North Carolina signed up their students for this pilot project, which museum staffers dubbed a “flipped field trip.” Called “Artists in Process,” it was loosely based on the model of the “flipped classroom,” in which teachers assign online reading, YouTube lectures, and other digital resources as homework to cover facts, figures, dates, and other basic information, then students spend class time in deeper discussions, analysis, and collaborative projects.
