To teach in a classroom with blended learning is providing students with an intentional shift to integrate online learning through content and instruction. This approach allows students to combine together the technology and lessons for a multi-dimensional learning experience.
The methodology is more than simply adding computers to your classroom with blended learning and hoping the students use them.
It is important to set targeted goals for using blended learning with your students. A few examples include: Global preparedness, excellence in communication, community involvement, increased productivity or career readiness.
Creating an interactive classroom environment will increase the collaboration between students during instruction.
When teachers are proactive and design the classroom for small group activities and flipped lessons plans the students are appropriately more engaged in their learning.
Smart teachers have learned that when students bring devices to the classroom it is an asset rather than a liabity.
Parents & students should expect their teachers to stay informed and up-to-date with the latest trends in technology and digital media. Blended learning is a ay for teachers to connect their students as global citizens and teach them how to maximize technology for a more personalized educational experience.
