Avoiding 3 Blended Learning Mistakes and the Future of OnLine Learning

Avoiding 3 Blended Learning Mistakes and the Future of OnLine Learning | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

"Adapting a course to a blended learning format is not difficult.  Avoiding these three common errors helps."


1) Simply using an existing segment of the course for the live component.

    

2) Reusing existing content unedited
  • If students don’t see the connection between both the online and in class components, their level of participation tends to decline.
    
3) Using the wrong medium for the content

In a recent report, the National Education Organization (NEA) stated that by 2019, researchers predict that 50% of all high school courses will be delivered online.


It’s easy to discount these figures as they are representative of education, not the corporate training environment. But keep in mind that these students will be fully conversant with blended learning concepts and applications having received a good part of their education in a blended format. 


In five to ten years, they will be competing for the same training dollars as you.

How to Blend Face-to-Face Delivery with Online Learning

How to Blend Face-to-Face Delivery with Online Learning | Agile Learning | Scoop.it
  • Social media can be a powerful pedagogical tool in the classroom, but the key to its success lies in building a dynamic and sustainable 'online teacher presence'.


The 10 strategies listed offer insight into effective online tutoring techniques that complement traditional face-to-face delivery.


Here's an excerpt:


  1. Building a safe online environment, in which everyone feels comfortable and confident to contribute
  2. Allowing for social connection should come before content-oriented goals. Work on building trust before launching into lessons that warrant more complex cognitive online demands.
  3. Teacher and student commitment to encourage the growth of their 'pop-up cyber society'.
  4. Actively refer to the online forum environment whilst delivering lessons
  5. Embed positive psychology into the online educational forum.
