I recently attended a Blended Learning Workshop in Wilkesboro, NC. During this session, we explored the pieces and parts of the Blended Learning process. Before I tell you how SIMPLE it is to get Blended Learning started in your classroom, let’s make sure you are clear on the basics of Blended Learning.
Blended Learning integrates face-to-face instruction with technology-based learning. There are 6 different Blended Learning Models you can choose from. In my kindergarten classroom, I have found the Rotational Model was easiest to implement. No matter which model you choose, it’s the personalization of the content that is most important. We know the “one size fits all” method does not work in our schools. Through Blended Learning, we are working to personalize the content to meet each student’s individual needs. I decided to start incorporating Blended Learning into my daily math instruction first. Here are some of the main Blended Learning websites and apps that we use in our classroom.
