Blended Learning with Special Needs Kindergarten/First Grade Students

Hi Everyone,

I am completing my Master's Degree in Instructional Media and Design and working on a project that uses the blended learning model. I am working with special needs kindergarten and first grade students. I am trying to determine if incorporating games within instruction will increase motivation and learning. I have done lots of research and wanted to know if anyone has any experience with the blended learning with special need students? Also I am looking for any online assessments for this age level.

Great idea Nichole!! This would surely make kids grab their attentions and also motivate them for the learning process as well.

So, post this holidays we are planning to make it as a part of our curriculum.

Hi Oscar!!  Is there a particular program are you using and what grade?

We do not have anyone assigning us projects, or books or exams for which to prepare. The exception to that would be the job requirements in a job that we have chosen. Theoretically, we work in a job that…See More
