This T-chart is used to allow students to observe, practice, and critique the quality of a transition. We have a few students model, we then provide feedback as a class, the group practices again, and we repeat as a larger group. The chart is broken into what went well on the left, and how can we improve on the right. The main purpose is to empower students to take pride and ownership during their rotation transition.

Routines and Procedures

Transition Time

Within my blended learning classroom, students transition between computers and their desks or the carpet at least twice during every class period. To ensure that we don't lose valuable time during these transitions, I have implemented a structured process to support my students in moving from one station to another. When it's time for transition, I call out the name of a station, and the students in the appropriate group call out their group's name, indicating to me that they know where they are going. As students rotate onto the computers, they know that they should walk counter-clockwise, starting from the scratch paper area to their work areas.

This is a T-Chart we use to define, as a class, what blended learning should look like and sound like. Allowing students to identify the shoulds/should nots of blended learning transitions, the T-Chart helps them see and discuss the purpose and need for urgency during transitions, especially at the beginning of the school year.

Blended Learning Time-Keepers

This strategy is called Blended Learning Timekeeper. The BL Timekeeper circulates and focuses on looking for students who are moving with urgency and purpose. This strategy emphasizes focus and motivation. Since we implemented this strategy in our class, the students are logging on faster, as they want to be an 'urgency all-star'. 

 
Feedback Systems
Peer Feedback

There are two feedback practices within this strategy video. The first half shows us setting up the expectations and granting randomly assigned roles for the feedback session. Prior to dismissing I try to have students point where they are going to clear up any confusion. The second half shows students using our teamwork rubric sentence stems to write down comments. Students know they are going to use different color markers to write on team posters and give a glow and or a grow for the other team. 

 
Independent Student Learning
Computer Support Hand Signals

Computer support hand signals are a way for students to nonverbally communicate a need while on the computers. It may be that they have tech issues or perhaps they need help with a lesson. Students hold two fingers up in the air and they wait for either the computer captain, which is a student role, the teacher, or the blended learning coordinator to offer assistance.
