Blended Learning: 10 Trends

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | Online Learning for grades K through 12 | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

As I was looking through my Scoop.it listings I came across this blended learning option shared by Dennis T OConner.  I like how the infographic addresses learning styles, student centered approaches and newer education trends like gamification.

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning | Online Learning for grades K through 12 | Scoop.it
How much time do we put into the design of the assessment plans in our online courses? Is most of that time focused upon summative graded assignments that factor into the course grade? Or, do they also include opportunity for practice and informal feedback?

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 24, 2014 4:43 PM

Assessment should reflect purpose. We require summative assessment in our society and yet we know learners thrive, grow and develop on a diet of formative assessment. The balance is the key! Feedback and the use of authentic assessment tasks are critical positive factors.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 24, 2014 5:46 PM

They make sense, but ask teachers about authentic assessment. It is still thought of as an isolated activity where the student does their project alone. That is not the way of the world and has not been forever. We work and learn together. Why not assess together?

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, February 25, 2014 9:19 AM

Wonderful article that challenges us to think through the online assessments and their prep!
