Teacher Talk Webinar - iNACOL

Teacher Talk Webinar - iNACOL | Virtual Instruction | Scoop.it
Cindy Carbajal's insight:

A panel of students from across the United States who are involved in blended and online learning programs will be the speakers for this session. Currently, there are close to 2 million students taking online courses annually in the U.S. Additionally, thousands of students are involved in blended learning programs. Included on this panel will be students from New York City Schools who are part of the iLearnNYC blended learning initiative, students from full time online programs, and students who are involved in part time online programs. Join this webinar to listen to the students discuss how they are learning, what they are learning and how learning is different for them online or blended as compared to traditional learning. There will be time for attendees to also ask questions of the students.

David Donat's curator insight, July 24, 2013 12:26 PM

Una bona presentació de la "Flipped Classroom": no és un mètode pedagògic, sinó una manera més d'enfocar l'aprenentatge, que pot anar bé en algunes ocasions i que en d'altres no tant. Es pot plantejar com un recurs més, combinable amb qualsevol altre.

La meva opinió és que els alumnes són tan diversos que no hi ha cap metodologia "ideal". Cadascun necessitarà eines i processos diferents i per tant, quantes més dinàmiques i metodologies s'utilitzin (i més flexibles siguin) millor s'atendrà a cadascun d'ells. No cal dir que amb ratios de més de 30 adolescents per aula tampoc es poden fer miracles.
