I was thinking this week about all the different ways we are helping students through a Blended Learning model in and out of the classroom. Blended Learning as defined by Christensen has three imperatives.
- at least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace;
- at least in part in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home;
- with modalities along each student’s learning path within a course or subject that are connected to provide an integrated learning experience.
What type of Blended Learning model are you using in your classroom or school?
We have built great partnerships with schools using the station rotation, lab rotation, flipped classroom, flex and sometimes even the a la carte models. The schools most successfully implementing the a la carte model have a designated block period.
