6 Types of Blended Learning

6 Types of Blended Learning | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

"Blended Learning is not so much an innovation as it is a natural by-product of the digital domain creeping into physical boundaries. As digital and social media become more and more prevalent in the life of learners, it was only a matter of time before learning became “blended” by necessity.

That said, there’s a bit more to Blended and “Hybrid” Learning than throwing in a little digital learning." Terry Heick

"Now that it's the middle of summer, rubrics are probably the furthest thing from your minds. However, unfortunately it won't be long from now that we will be knee-deep in marking. ForAllRubrics https://www.forallrubrics.com/ is one of my best finds online in a long time. This is a free “service” for teachers that works on iPad and iPhone. Now, teachers will be able to create rubrics and easily use their iOS devices to assess all of their students."

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?

 

As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.

 

Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"
