Today is an exciting day in the OLLIE Community. Today you will explore how to configure physical learning space, use of time in the classroom, and also how to distribute yourself and other staff if deciding to transition to a blended learning model in the classroom.
iNacol has a document containing the “The Six Elements for Planning and Implementation of Blended Learning” as teachers transition into a blended learning environment in their “A Roadmap for Implementation of Blended Learning at the School Level: A Case Study of the iLearnNYC Lab Schools.”
The questions that will help us reflect on today’s videos come from the Teaching Element in the six blended learning elements. The questions are:
How will teaching and the role of the teacher change?
How will student learning change?
What is the school’s pedagogical philosophy?
How will best teaching practices be modeled and share?
These questions may help you reflect on your own situation, as well as the videos Ms. Brooks will watch today.
ScenarioNow that Ms. Brooks has some ideas on which LMS she will use with her students, she'd like to learn more about how to set up her classroom and structure her time with students. She starts investigating some of the different learning models that other schools are implementing.
These models include:
She watches the videos attached to each of these models and reviews information in the OLLIE Community. She earns an OLLIE badge by completing the "Blended Learning Models" forum.
