Flipping the Field Trip: Bringing the Art Museum to the Classroom
Wetterlund, Kris
Theory Into Practice, v47 n2 p110-117 Apr 2008
Museum resources for teachers that are available online today go way beyond the occasional lesson plan or thumbnail reproduction available via the Internet 10 years ago. New technologies have made it possible for art museums to imagine, create, and deliver a broad array of teaching resources, from online interactive multimedia to tools teachers use to create their own resources. Meanwhile, many teachers who used to depend on the Internet only as a reference to support their teaching have acquired the equipment and access that makes it possible to use digital materials as teaching tools in the classroom. This article examines the current landscape of online art museum educational resources and provides examples of the creative ways that teachers are using these resources in the classroom. (Contains 3 figures.)
