"Video: I chose this video from Donna Bonavia for a few key reasons. First, in this blog, I will try to highlight technology in action in elective/encore/specials classrooms (Visual Arts, Music, Theatre, PE, etc). Second, Mrs. Bonavia’s video is less than 3 minutes, which I think (if possible) is ideal for a flipped classroom video. It is a comprehensive introduction to drawing a still life, but is not so long that a student would lose interest while watching at home. Third, the teacher references earlier videos she has made, for students who need review on information relevant to this new concept, and she ends the video with the first step for the students as they enter the classroom tomorrow. Overall, I think this is an excellent example of flipping the visual art classroom." The Talking Tech, 2016
