Reflection: Flexibility Earth's Changing Climate - Section 3: Students in Action

 

This is our school's first year as a 1-to-1 computer environment. Now I'm considering restructuring my classroom as a blended learning environment.

Both the quality of the Concord Consortium's High Adventure Science Climate Module and the positive feedback from my students has convinced me to move forward. I will be spending some of my summer days developing a blended learning classroom.

My students commented that one of the things they liked best about the simulation was the ability to work at their own pace. Teachers have the option to run a status report at anytime during the module. When I checked on my students' progress, it was clear that students were pacing themselves at almost as many different levels as there are students in my classroom - a true testimony to the need for a delivery that puts the student learning first.
