Blended learning is a Flexible Instructional Model in which technology is integrated to create personalized learning experiences for students. By designing learning around flexible time and space, personalized tasks, meaningful use of technology, and responsive teaching through a student-centered approach, students in effective blended learning classes will build autonomy, learn important skills for their future, and engage in a more effective learning environment. Personalizing and transforming learning is hard, but doing so without incorporating technology is almost impossible! In this in-person, 1-day workshop, a BetterLesson instructional coach will help participants create a shared learning space to discuss and model best practices, and ensure participants can build an actionable plan for effective and meaningful technology integration for their blended learning models. Learning experiences within this session will allow for participants to think about how they can personalize learning with their students whether they are novices with a little tech integration in their in-person classes or more experienced with blending technology.
This session is designed for teachers, coaches, and leaders who want to build a common language and experience around the importance of blending learning. This workshop is targeted to both new and experienced educators by providing differentiated learning experiences around blended learning.
