4 Benefits Of Blended Learning...

Often there seems to be an “either/or” approach to taking online and face-to-face (F2F) classes. Some students may want the full campus experience of pursuing a degree at a traditional brick and mortar institution, while others want the convenience and flexibility of eLearning. Some programs also offer a blended format in which classes are a mixture of both modalities. There may be a classroom meeting once a week, for instance, with much of the course taking place online. Students may also find that their F2F professors make use of available technology for various activities as well.

Given that both options have advantages for learners that potential employers will find appealing, college students should take both online and F2F courses. Here are four benefits college students can obtain by blending these two modalities. ...

Teachers Embrace Digital Learning Strategies | MindShift

Teachers Embrace Digital Learning Strategies | MindShift | GCS-BYOD | Scoop.it

Today is the second annual Digital Learning Day, designated to bring attention to the benefits of technology for learning. As part of the effort, PBS LearningMedia has released a survey showing that 74 percent of teachers say educational technology benefits their classroom in many ways, including the ability to reinforce and expand content, motivate students, and respond to a variety of learning styles. Given these numbers, and despite increasing access, it’s not surprising that 68 percent of teachers still want more access to technology in the classroom. That number goes up to 75 percent of teachers in low-income schools.

No mention of connecting classrooms to the world-- one the most important uses of technology in the classroom-- but at least the Russians get a shout-out.

Khitam A Al-Utaibi's curator insight, February 13, 2013 11:09 AM

I appreciate teachers' initiating the change with their students in the classrooms. I hear them telling the official systems "WE'RE NOT WAITING FOR YOU TO CHANGE, WE ARE MOVING TOWARDS THE FUTURE WITH OUR STUDENTS".

 

If official education systems did not take qualitative steps towards better 21st century education, soon we will see them in chaos, living dark ages of ignorance, rigidness, and limited minds!
