Will it Blend? Developing Blended Learning Experiences In All Classrooms (WS)
A common misconception about blended learning is that it only suited for certain subjects. While the “flipped classroom” approach popularized by Khan Academy is certainly well-suited to math classes, this is not the only model of blended learning out there!
By exploring the underlying pedagogy and design of effective blended learning environments, this extended session aims to help teachers across all subject areas identify how they can bring effective blended learning experiences into their classrooms. This session will be both practical and collaborative, with participants working in small groups to create personalized action plans for implementing these environments in their classroom or perhaps even school!
