Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Scientific Notation: Like Twitter for Very Large or Small Values - Section 3: Explore


In my blended learning classroom I truly have an opportunity to quickly act on the formative data that I receive in terms of my students mastery of particular content. In this portion of the lesson I am able to administer a pretest and regroup students based on their performance. Students who need a deeper dive into the content will hang with me and other students for small group instruction which seeks to meet their needs right then. Other students who are already familiar with the content and who demonstrate their knowledge on the pretest are allowed to move forward thus controlling the pace at which they move through the content. 

This is only one benefit I have seen in terms of the responsive instruction I am able to provide for my students in our blended learning station rotation model. Other advantages or drivers of blended learning I have experienced would be the greater engagement, self-efficacy, and excitement about learning. Read the following blog in order to explore other benefits of teaching using a blended model in math and science.
