Blended Learning Helps Students at Different Cognitive Levels

Blended Learning Helps Students at Different Cognitive Levels | Blended Learning in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
Blended learning is defined as a formal education program in which a student learns, at least in part, through delivery of content and instruction via digital and online media with some element of student control over time, place, path or pace. This is critical as standard school curriculum is designed to the needs and ability of the average student, leaving many students to slip through the cracks.

The design of blended learning options must make them part of an integrated training curriculum with a planned workflow structure. It means aligning every online resource, be it an eLearning module, eBook, video, podcast, or an assessment to a particular course and classroom curriculum and integrating them as single units with a planned workflow.

New report explores main blended models and their use

blended-learningA new paper by advocacy and policy org iNacol explores how blended learning is being used in practice and traces its history from 2008 to today. In particular, it takes a close look at the four major blended models and, through case studies, how specific schools have fared in implementing them.

According to iNacol, the paper also delves into the evolution of blended learning, the use of digital content and curricula, and the engagement of students toward higher levels of academic success. The case studies profiled illustrate a variety of blended learning implementations, providing insights for increasing program effectiveness.

Blended learning emerges as a leading trend in education technology

Blended learning emerges as a leading trend in education technology | Blended Learning in Higher Ed | Scoop.it

The annual New Media Consortium Horizon Report’s K-12 2015 Edition, that provides insight into digital learning trends, named blended learning as a key topic to watch in the next two years. The trends included in the report were selected by 56 experts from 22 countries.Two teaching and learning trends expected to accelerate the use of educational technology in classrooms in a year or two, the report said, were the use of blended learning and STEAM (an acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts and math) education.Sometimes called hybrid learning, blended learning enables educators to pursue a variety of instructional models. Ideally, the technology allows the teacher to make the most of face-to-face time with students, leaving some more routine learning tasks to the computer.

Technology - I chose this resource because I like the idea of blended learning as it makes students more accountable for studying new information on their own.  I hope to share this with other educators to provide them with ideas on how they can successfully implement blended learning in their lessons.

Is blended learning an inescapable reality for today's learners?

Is blended learning an inescapable reality for today's learners? | Blended Learning in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
Blended learning is generally and loosely defined as ‘learning that takes place partly aided by the use of online resources’. Under this definition, it seemed obvious to me that the learning that most children experience in the Western world is, whether we approve of it or not, blended, especially if you consider the learning that goes on outside of school.

Why it seems that blended learning will become a number one trend in education in the next two years? According to NMC Horizon Report: 2015 Higher Education Edition “blended approaches were most successful in ‘unbundling’ the classroom — students felt that instructors were more accessible when learning materials and discussion forums were placed online and there was altogether more persistent communication through the use of virtual learning environments”.

Blended Learning is one of the major learning concepts that came about as a direct result of the impact of technology integration in education.In blended learning students and teachers get to experiment with a multimodal teaching method in which the digital and virtual learning is blended with the face-to-face one. However, one of the misconceptions circulating among those who are less enthusiastic about the use of this learning method in classrooms is that blended learning is nothing else but replacing teachers with technology. The infographic below debunks this myth and features the numerous benefits of blended learning.

Best practices for blended learning from Tom Arnett are presented in this online interview conducted by Vicki Davis. 

Caroline Tanner's curator insight, April 1, 3:04 AM

Blended Learning ist meiner Meinung nach nicht nur ein Motivator für die SuS mal mit anderen Medien konfrontiert zu werden, sondern integriert sie auch in der heutigen digitalen Welt: Immer weniger ist für uns ein Leben ohne Computer vorstellbar - dies muss darum meiner Meinung nach schon in der Schule (v.a. im jungen Alter) implementiert werden. 


Durch das Blended Learning kommt einerseits Abwechslung durch die Medien rein und andererseits ist es wie einen Szenenwechsel für die Schüler, wo sie, obwohl der Inhalt noch der gleiche ist, die Geschichte (Mathe, Geographie, ect.) auf eine andere Art und Weise zusgespielt kriegen und der Transfer bei manchen sogar besser fällt als bei einer Methode zu bleiben.

Can an Online Teaching Tool Solve One of Higher Education’s Biggest Headaches? | Blended Learning in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
Hybrid classes have not become widely popular in colleges yet because of a combination of wariness and cost. Universities, especially prestigious ones, tend to shy away from taking risks on online ventures in general because they could dilute the school’s elite brand or uphold the brand and fail anyway. In addition, implementing blended learning and teaching professors how to work with the new materials takes a lot of time.

ELI Course: Looking for the Pedagogy in Blended Course Design | EDUCAUSE.edu

ELI Course: Looking for the Pedagogy in Blended Course Design | EDUCAUSE.edu | Blended Learning in Higher Ed | Scoop.it

The proliferation of blended/hybrid initiatives and resources is heartening and furthering a delivery model that is reaching maturity. However, there is still much to be examined about what organizations promote as models for designed blended courses and how these models are enacted by practitioners. Research in this area has historically focused on learner traits, grades, faculty/learner levels of satisfaction, and/or levels of learner engagement (see Dzuiban, Hartman, and Moskal 2004 and Nagel 2009). But blended learning is more than a simple "flip" of the classroom because it requires careful planning and cautious implementation and may even be transformative for both learner and instructor.

This session will present the findings from a series of studies examining blended best practices, pedagogical practices, and learner preparedness. There is indication that while alignment through an integration of online and face-to-face components is a priority, in actuality courses are location-driven and typically based on pedagogical templates. Most reports advocate a learner-centered approach, yet the variation in approaches indicates that learners must be prepared to adapt to different course designs in ways that acknowledge underlying requirements of the blended format. The presentation topics will include research findings and patterns present and absent across these areas. The session will address mission directly by sharing a range of pedagogical strategies and best practices that are directly aligned with learner success through the axiomatic use of technology to support and facilitate learning.
