Blended Learning

Dear educators,I was reading an interesting article about blended education. It is basically the mixing of online courses with face-to-face learning. It also gives students more freedom in terms of time, path and pace. Some of the reports on this approach (although not many) show that the outcomes are good and even we could get more differentiated classrooms. Can you share your experience if you have any or thoughts about it?See More

"Hi Norma, I think that if we can make learning authentic, we will encourage students to be innovative in their approaches.  Here is an article I came across in a course I am taking:  http://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/eli3009.pdf.…"

"Thanks for sharing, Ashley. I think we tend to get used to measure our intelligence by grades that it is hard to encourage students to innovate and create their own products based on what they really learned."

Base on what Dr. Tony Wagner said, teachers have to encourage teachers to become innovators instead of just consumers. Students should go beyond worrying about only for good grades and learning from failure. However, the system assess students by grades. Isn't it a bit contradictory?See More

What’s the Goal of Education?

April 25, 2019 by Tom Whitby @tomwhitbyAs adults we generally learn about things that we need to learn about. Of course we also have an opportunity to learn about things we would like to learn about. 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
