Blended Learning - What does it take?
Blended learning is a fairly new concept to me as an educator and I am enjoying reading through the variety of classroom, school etc. approaches to this new teaching philosophy. I found the posting by Heather Wolpert-Gawlron in Edutopia to be particularly informative as she outlines the skills needed to become a Blended Learning educator. www.edutopia.org/blog/blended-learning-behind-scenes-heather-wolpert-gawron Blending "face to face" teacher/student interactions with onsite and offsite online lessons and activities has it's possibilities and it's challenges. Technology has provided students with opportunities for real world learning, global communication/collaboration, and self directed learning. However, is this a good fit for every student?
