Flipped Teaching and Learning – A Form on Blended Learning That Just Makes Sense

Flipped Teaching and Learning – A Form on Blended Learning That Just Makes Sense | Eliana Curvelo | Scoop.it

Flipped Teaching incorporates elements of online learning and traditional learning, more commonly referred to as Blended Learning. Blended Learning has been shown in multiple studies to be the optimal method of teaching (in contrast to exclusively online or face-to-face formats). Here are a few resources for further exploration: Is Blended Learning Most Effective?, Blended Learning from the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research.

Jasper Johns achieves control with encaustic.

Jasper Johns achieves control with encaustic. | Eliana Curvelo | Scoop.it

Purchased by The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Jasper Johns White Target, 1957 is created with oil paint and encaustic on canvas. Encaustic hardens very quickly, so each brushstroke appears on the canvas exactly as Jasper Johns actually placed it. The individual strokes don’t blend into each other like they would with just oil paint. 

 

By using encaustic, a melted wax process, Jasper Johns is able to control the surface vs. just using oil paint. As a result, Jasper Johns is able to build up the surface into layers, sometimes incorporating old newspaper & collage.

 

Jasper Johns once told Leo Steinberg, the art historian, that he chose to paint things like Flags and Targets because they were “pre-formed, conventional, depersonalized, factual, exterior elements.”

 

He could include them in paintings, prints and works on paper without them having to mean anything specific—which meant, in a way, that Jasper Johns' paintings were abstract!

Joseph K. Levene's curator insight, December 8, 2013 3:24 AM

Jasper Johns Works of Art are very literal. Theoretically, one could play a game of darts on a Target painting like the one owned by The Whitney Museum of American Art, but you dare not try.  And Johns’s Flags have been considered as patriotic Works on many occasions.

 

So are Johns' Target and Flag Paintings actual things, or paintings of things?

 

For Jasper Johns, the philosophical problems of representation became part of the painting tradition in a way that they have never been before.

Technology should be a tool to assist with learning, rather than a big checkmark when it is used!

Ness Crouch's curator insight, January 15, 2014 3:21 PM

This is a great article and needs to be read by every teacher.
