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 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!

Creating Learning Environments that Help Students Stretch and Grow as Learners

Creating Learning Environments that Help Students Stretch and Grow as Learners | Technology, Pedagogy, Best Practices in k-12 Education | Scoop.it
The March 12, 2014 post raised issues about those students who really don’t want to work with others in groups … “lone wolves” as they’re called in the literature. Your responses raised a number of issues. I thought it might be worth exploring some of them a bit further.

Many of the comments defended the lone wolves, pointing out that their good academic performance could be compromised by having to work in a group. Did anyone comment about those social learners (whose existence is also well documented in the research) who do well working in groups? We require those students to spend time listening and learning alone, experiences that potentially compromise their academic performance.

Encouraging Reflective Learning with Podcasting at the K-12 Level

Encouraging Reflective Learning with Podcasting at the K-12 Level | Technology, Pedagogy, Best Practices in k-12 Education | Scoop.it

It’s no secret that students today belong to a very tech-savvy generation. Whether a consequence of an increased culture of technological innovation or perhaps the cause of it, today’s young learners have made technology an integral part of all aspects of their lives. As a reflection of this phenomenon, students no longer want to be passive consumers of their education (have they ever?), but instead want to be active participants in constructing knowledge.

 

Recognizing this desire, many teachers are leveraging Web 2.0 tools to incorporate innovative new practices into their classroom instruction. One of these, podcasting, has found its niche at the postsecondary level of education already. Considered to be the audio form of a blog, educators are beginning to find meaningful applications for podcasting at the high school, junior high, and elementary levels as well.

Tech-ifying learning? Educators are key to fulfilling promise of technology in classrooms

Tech-ifying learning? Educators are key to fulfilling promise of technology in classrooms | Technology, Pedagogy, Best Practices in k-12 Education | Scoop.it

"Technology in education is a $7.9 billion-a-year industry that plays on a dual promise. It purports both to redefine traditional learning and to alleviate the socioeconomic disparities of American education. The term “educational technology” encompasses a range of meanings, from Web-based tools to mobile apps to computer programming skills. All of these digital permutations have two overlapping priorities: making (or saving) money and providing access."

MOOCs and copyright law

MOOCs and copyright law | Technology, Pedagogy, Best Practices in k-12 Education | Scoop.it

"Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are still pretty new but more and more universities, platform providers and publishers are beginning to create MOOCs to raise their profile and showcase high-quality materials. But there is a risk that reputations can take a serious hit if materials and data are being used incorrectly, or without permission."

skiinglibrarian's curator insight, April 19, 2014 5:48 PM

Excellent analysis of the copyright issues that educators need to consider as they  utilise the open online course revolution. There are such opportunities for learning and teaching but TIME needs to be given to ensuring that resources used are attributed appropriately, are legitimate and permissions sought where necessary. Many MOOC platforms are commercial in nature and profit focused (in the long term) so Statutory licences and Educational exceptions are  not applicable.

Blended Learning Model Definitions | Christensen Institute

Blended Learning Model Definitions | Christensen Institute | Technology, Pedagogy, Best Practices in k-12 Education | Scoop.it

The definition of blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns:

(1) at least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace;

(2) at least in part in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home;

(3) and the modalities along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, April 12, 2014 3:41 PM

The focus of these scoop.it pages is networked learning. As the above definition points out, online learning is part and parcel of blended learning experiences. In some cases, the online part is of a social nature, thereby qualifying it as a form of networked learning. Apart from that, next to MOOCs blended learning is another attempt at marrying the online and the offline in learning. Although the terminology used is different, although the intentions are different (for sure if it concerns xMOOCs), there are a lot of similarities worth drawing attention to. This is particularly so since the various forms of blended learning discussed in this short scoop offer useful food for thought for those interested in furthering the evolution of MOOCs. I am thinking in particular of the à-la-carte model and the enriched-virtual model. Also, the classification is unlikely to be exhaustive and therefore provides food for the imaginative thinker.

"Innovation" yenilikçilik eğitimcilerin eteklerini tutuşturuyor, kaygılarını arttırıyor (tabii ABD'de) bizde pek o düzeyde değil durum. Neyse, bu yazıda güzel bir noktaya değinmiş yazar: yenilik birisi size "al şu yenilik" bunu kullan dediğinde olmaz, onunla ne yapacağınızı bilemezsiniz. Yenilik basit ve küçük birşey olabilir ama kendi ilgi alanınızdan kendi deneyiminizden çıkmalıdır. Her zaman dijital teknolojik olması da gerekmez bazan masa düzenini değiştirmek, tartışma biçimini değiştirmektir.
