Establishing a database

What will the “flipped classroom” lessons look like?

Taking a woodgrain faux finish as an example lets go through the technique process and what content the students can follow.

Beginning with a video from The National (London) this is a scenic art specific tutorial. It shows two step-by-step examples, details tools and materials the students will be familiar with (also importantly using the same language we use in class). Having used tagging and categorisation for blog posts I think each piece of content should be tagged with key phrases that allow the student to explore different aspects of the video. E.g. emulsion glaze or National theatre.

There will also be a accompanying link to the library reading list and the relevant book the students might want to look at.

To explore further there should be links to other video that relate:

This video uses woodgraining tools to create shuttered concrete.

Then there should be a link to a non scenic art specific tutorial to give balance, and decorative artist we use a lot is Pierre Finklestien and we have his book in stock.

Again with a link to his website

also a link to his instagram page, this gives a candid look into short video and pictures of his process and allows the user to communicate and tag him into posts.

A then a comments section. Using the videos through youtube allows the students to explore more through YouTubes excellent system.
