Abstract: Leeward Community College students entering Digital Art introductory courses have recently been underachieving academically, slowing matriculation through related programs of study. Existing research suggested mixing Cognitivist, Constructivist, Social and Experiential Learning theories with social learning strategies to increase academic and behavioral outcomes as well as student creativity. In response, the researcher-instructor initiated a technology-assisted action research intervention by kick-starting the semester with a collaborative project in her flipped-curriculum Art 112: Digital Art course. A Google Sites learning module guided collaboration and course-specific content and activities. The study involves 20 adult participants, all of whom reacted positively to the intervention, both academically and socially.
