With blended learning you are no longer in the race with the bell. Below you will find a road map for ways you can begin to integrate technology resources in your classroom.
Step 1: Create active and engaged learners for your blended learning classroom.
- For blended learning, it is important to have a clear concept. Using an online discussion area will create small group conversations and creative learning. Start the process of active and engaged learners in your classroom and online today.
Step 2: Let students work with each other to build problem-solving skills.
- Students like working together. This type of problem solving is a key trademark of the blended learning method. Remember you are not the only person who can teach your students.
Step 3: Don’t worry if every kid in your class doesn’t have a device.
- You may encounter a classroom where every student does not individually have their own device. You need not worry. Students learn to share with each other to create a collaborative energy in the classroom by working together on the same device.
Step 4: Utilize back channels to engage students in and out of the classroom.
Step 5: Bring your topics full circle with in-class group discussions.
- It’s exciting to watch when student’s take over and lead the lessons and conversations. You may be surprised at how much that they have learned and can teach you along the way.
