To differentiate the four models of blended learning </li> <li> Slide 4 </li> <li> What is blended learning? to combine or mix mode of Web-based technology to accomplish an educational goal. to combine various pedagogical approaches (e.g. constructivisim, behaviourism, cognitivism) to produce an optimal learning outcome with or without instructional technology. to combine any form of instructional technology with face-to-face instructor-led training. (Driscoll, 2002) </li> <li> Slide 5 </li> <li> Therefore blended learning is An integrated approach to teaching and learning that includes multiple modes of instruction and students practice. In other words, blended learning is a formal education program in which a brick-and-mortar school structure, face-to-face classroom methods are combined with computer-mediated activities </li> <li> Slide 6 </li> <li> Why The goal of blended learning is to provide the most efficient and effective instruction experience to combining delivery modalities. Blended learning aims to join the best of classroom teaching and learning with the best of online teaching and learning. </li> <li> Slide 7 </li> <li> Task In pairs or threes think about the pros and cons of blending one of your course. </li> <li> Slide 8 </li> <li> Pros Can save time, effort and cost. More effective than single methods of instruction Allow sharing with other learners from various regions. Suit individual learning styles Encourage self-directed learning Use a wide range of educational activities </li> <li> Slide 9 </li> <li> Cons Can be a complex job to bring the right blends together, involve more work and planning Students unfamiliar and unable to make the most out of the experience. Learning methods that dont fit the course objectives. </li> <li> Slide 10 </li> <li> Models Blended Learning can generally be classified into four models Rotational model Flex model A la carte model Enriched virtual model </li> <li> Slide 11 </li> <li> Rotation Model Students rotate on a fixed schedule between learning online in a one-to-one, self-paced environment and sitting in a classroom with a traditional face-to-face teacher. Students rotate at fixed points in time between a classroom and computer lab Students learn predominantly online The classroom is generally reserved for other learning activities. </li> <li> Slide 12 </li> <li> Flex model Online learning forms the backbone of a student's learning Students still attend a brick-and-mortar school every day. But every class is divided into online instruction and face-to-face time with teachers rather than just one or two courses, as in the rotation model. Programs with a flex model feature an online platform that delivers most of the curricula. Teachers provide on-site support on a flexible and adaptive as-needed basis through in-person tutoring sessions and small group sessions. </li> <li> Slide 13 </li> <li> A la carte model Provides students with opportunities to take online courses that supplement in-person courses. Online learning is remote, and Traditional learning is in a brick-and-mortar school. Formerly known as Self-Blend </li> <li> Slide 14 </li> <li> Enriched virtual model: An online platform and teacher deliver all curricula for the most part, students work remotely. the whole class is on the same schedule, meaning each students takes the same exact course load of online and offline classes </li> <li> Slide 15 </li> <li> Slide 16 </li> <li> Task Which blended model is better? To find out the answer refer the online resources provided on the blog With the help of online resources available on the blog, create a graphic organizer to show all the models of blended learning. </li> </ul>
