11 Steps Of Effective Project-Based Learning In A Blended Classroom

In part 1 of this 6-part series, Thomas Stanley looked at an overview of blended learning, specifically the critical interactions of a blended learning model. In part 2, he looked specifically at student-to-student interaction, and the reality of synchronous and asynchronous access. In part 3, he looked at student-to-teacher interactions, and moving from instruction to becoming the “guide on the side,” and in part 4 he explored the idea of student-to-community interactions. Below in part 5, Stanley examines Student-to-material interactions as part of the blended learning model, specifically the process of project-based learning in a blended classroom.
Stephen Gwilliam's insight:
"What is the most effective way to get students to grapple with the subject matter? How can students be held accountable for their work? How can the synchronous and asynchronous technologies best be used to help students understand the different levels of learning? What does it take to make students accountable for their ideas and the information they are required to learn too?" Great questions for your staff and school board to consider!

The World Is My School: Welcome to the Era of Personalized Learning | World Future Society

Future learning will become both more social. Humans have always been learning, but how we learn has changed over time. The earliest means of education were highly personal: Oral histories passed from adults to children, informal or formal apprenticeships, and one-on-one tutoring have all been used in the early history of most cultures. It’s only been in the last two centuries that we’ve used formalized systems of mass public education (aka industrialized education).

It's not the predictions that matter... it's the catchy infograpic we have to ensnare our students into creating their own predictions... worth using!!!

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, March 23, 2013 9:02 PM

As a writer, I find this set of predictions both interesting and, well, less than overwhelming. I'd like to see more creativity, especially with regard to the "least likely" possibilities, and less focus on tech companies. I'm more interested in thinking about what life might be like, than in which social media giant is on top. What predictions do you have, and what do you think are the odds for or against?

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 19, 2013 5:11 PM

Success of Blended Learning Depends on Innovation, Study Says

I think the point made by Brian Casey as a response comment "Blended learning doesn't look the same for all schools" is the key here. Technology itself does not raise student achievement- our eye needs to be kept on the main game.
