The blended classroom is beginning to happen in many school districts. This infographic provides a great overview of blended learning. In addition to the section shown above, which looks at how teacher-led instruction connects to quality digital learning time to group work and projects (and the ongoing cycle) you will find sections on:

* Turning Computer Time into Quality Learning Time

* Empowering Teachers with Real-Time Student Performance Information

* Tying It All Together

Online learning happens in a variety of ways. This post looks at some of the critical features that must be included for an online or blended class to be successful.

This Infographic  illustrates the best of both worlds in modern education!

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 27, 2014 12:15 AM

This method of teaching harnesses both teacher expertise and flipped, student-lead learning, all enriched with technology. It is beginning to sit quite well with me as I have noticed some students still want to take notes, listen and learn from you - the expert teacher in this case is still valued! This could also be supplemented with teachers online and so on!

The People’s Guide to Spatial Thinking

The People’s Guide to Spatial Thinking | Education | Scoop.it

"One of our colleagues and leaders in spatial thinking in education, Dr. Diana Stuart Sinton, has written a book entitled The People’s Guide to Spatial Thinking, along with colleagues Sarah Bednarz, Phil Gersmehl, Robert Kolvoord, and David Uttal. As the name implies, the book provides an accessible and readable way for students, educators, and even the general public to understand what spatial thinking is and why it matters. It “help[s] us think across the geographies of our life spaces, physical and social spaces, and intellectual space.” Dr. Sinton pulls selections from the NRC’s Learning to Think Spatially report and ties them to everyday life. In so doing, she also provides ways for us in the educational community to think about teaching these concepts and skills in a variety of courses. Indeed, as she points out, spatial thinking is particularly essential within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, as well as geography." - See more at: ESRI's GIS Education Community blog.

Singing a piece of music for the first time while reading the notes from a sheet is hard, and requires complete control of one's vocals.
