Create a Blended Learning Classroom
Blended learning combines technology-driven, online learning with teacher led instruction to maximize a personalized learning experience for students. Blended learning involves rethinking class structure, use of time, and allocation of resources. The goal of blended learning is to increase student learning and achievement by using the best instructional strategies, and fostering a personalized, highly productive learning environment of engaged students. In this session, participants will engage in a blended learning simulation, become familiar with tools and strategies indicative of a blended learning environment, and discuss with colleagues, enabling teachers to develop systems for creating their own blended learning classroom.
