Blended Learning Implementation Guide

Blended learning means rethinking how class is structured, how time is used, and how limited resources are allocated. Compared to high-access environments, which simply provide devices for every student, blended learning includes an intentional shift to online instructional delivery for a portion of the day in order to boost learning and productivity. Productivity in this sense includes improvements to teacher access of data and its potential to inform instruction. Greater student productivity includes less time wasted on skills already mastered. Increased learning opportunities and improved student outcomes enhance overall system productivity.

We should have thought about restructing classrooms and the relationship we have with learning as teachers and learners.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 27, 2013 6:01 PM

The integration of technology and teaching is completely a good idea in my opinion. Especially given that we are living in a digital age, where learners have access to a lot of technical devices, which aim at improving and making life efficient. Thus by building curricula that welcomes the use of technology inside the classroom, will change the face of education - hopefully for the better. However my concern is the introduction of a 'customised' form of learning. Education is supposed to be unified experience where learners access information at the same time and at the same pace. It seems unfair that because there wil be fast learners in a class, that means they have to get to the end of the syllabus quicker than others. Everyone should receive attention in a similar manner, whether they understand the work or not. Teaching should not favour one person over the other.

Classcraft - Make learning an adventure | Scoopithelp | Scoop.it

Classcraft is a free online educational role-playing game that teachers and students play together in the classroom. Acting as a gamification layer around any existing curriculum, the game transforms the way a class is experienced, throughout the school year.

Its going to be interesting to see how much traction this gets in the school sector.... and then what happens when these students land in University lectures....!

Do you want to gamify your classroom? Try Classcraft!

 

magnus sandberg's curator insight, October 1, 2014 4:23 AM

I don't know how I feel about Classcraft. Is it a way to make school more exciting or is it a way to make games more boring. Or both? Or neither? I dont know, but it certainly is interesting!

On Blogging and Social Media: How to search Scoop.it sites | Scoopithelp | Scoop.it

Scoop.it is a great platform for curating web based content and collecting together your own portfolio or reading lists to share with the world. One of my major problems though with Scoop.it, used to be finding the articles and links I had saved and searching for useful articles on other Scoop.it.
