Blended Learning & The 21st Century Schizoid… Plan
Blended learning is a term that encompasses a number of different approaches to teaching and learning – all of them built around access to and learning through online resources blended with a face-to-face component. Blended learning enables students to access learning materials, lecture notes, assignments, readings, and audio and video materials anytime and anywhere, while enhancing the opportunities for peer-to-peer and student-to-instructor interaction, as well as student engagement and learning.

One of the greatest misconceptions in education today is that certain teachers have a higher natural aptitude in technology than others.

Creative Writing 101

Creative Writing 101 | Blended Learning & The 21st Century Schizoid… Plan | Scoop.it

Writing of any sort is hard, but rewarding work – you’ll gain a huge amount of satisfaction from a finished piece. Being creative can also be difficult and challenging at times, but immensely fun.

 

How to get started

 

Many people think that just because they’ve read a lot of stories (or even if they haven’t!) they should be able to write one. But as Nigel Watts writes:

 

There is a common belief that because most of us are literate and fluent, there is no need to serve an apprenticeship if we want to become a successful wordsmith. … That’s what I thought until I tried to write my first novel. I soon learnt that a novel, like a piece of furniture, has its own set of requirements, laws of construction that have to be learnt.
