I require my F2F learners to bring their mobile devices and use them during classes. We access the online course/materials, conduct on the spot research, group work, present, etc. I do not require (I do have recommendations) books, rather I support the acquisition of mobile devices and check out any extra devices I have as needed.
Flipping is one type of blending your course. I blend all my F2F courses, so some flipping applies.
I apply this by providing learners the opportunity to help design their learning, by providing choice in assignments, and using mostly project-based and group work learning.

Science & Art of Learning• Pedagogy – structured, formalK12 learning• Andragogy – structured, formaladult learning
Science & Art of LearningHeutagogyThe study of self-directed learning;includes unstructured, self-directed & self-determined learning; focus onmetacognition, knowledge sharing,creativity, original works, etc. (Hase&Kenyon, 2000; Blaschke, 2012)
Learning TheoriesConnectivismLearning Theory for the Digital Age – “thethesis that knowledge is distributed across anetwork of connections, and therefore thatlearning consists of the ability to constructand traverse those networks. It shares withsome other theories a core proposition, thatknowledge is not acquired, as though it werea thing. Knowledge is, on this theory, literallythe set of connections formed by actions andexperience.” (Siemens &Downes, 2011)
Learning & Technology ModelsOnline, Blended, Hybrid, HyFlex LearningEnvironmentsDifferent blends of online & face-to-face;synchronous & asynchronous; etc.
Research about Online &Blended• Using standards and innovative practicesto teach teachers to teach online changesface-to-face teaching practices. Theseteachers are able to more easily integratetechnology into their face-to-face teachingand often end up teaching in blendedformats (Parra, 2010).
Research about Online &Blended• The evidence is growing to “support the notionthat blended learning is more effective thaneither face to face or online learning bythemselves. Further, between online and face toface instruction, online is at least as good andmay even have the advantage in terms ofimproving student achievement and potentiallyexpanding the amount of time (and quality time)students spend learning(Nagel, 2009, para 1);Means, Toyama, Murphy,Bakia, & Jones, 2010).
Standards- ISTE NETS• International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) NationalEducational Technology Standards (NETS) for Administrators,Teachers, Students, and Computer Science Teachers.– The overarching purpose of the NETS is - “to set a standard ofexcellence and best practices in learning, teaching, and leading withtechnology in education.”“The benefits of using the NETS include:– Improving higher-order thinking skills, such as problem solving, criticalthinking, and creativity– Preparing students for their future in a competitive global job market– Designing student-centered, project-based, and online learningenvironments– Guiding systemic change in our schools to create digital places oflearning– Inspiring digital age professional models for working, collaborating, anddecision making”Access all the ISTE NETS standards at http://www.iste.org/standards.aspx
Standards- Quality Matters(QM)• The Quality Matters Rubric for Higher Educationis a set of 8 general standards and 41 specificstandards used to evaluate the design of onlineand blended courses. The Rubric is completewith annotations that explain the application ofthe standards and the relationship amongthem. A scoring system and set of online toolsfacilitate the evaluation by a team of reviewers.– Access Quality Matters athttps://qualitymatters.org
Standards- iNACOL• The International Association for K12Online Learning provides manyresources for online and blendedlearning, including research-basedstandards for K12 online coursedesign and online teaching.– Access iNACOL at http://www.inacol.org/

Learning & Technology ModelsSelf-Organizing Learning Environments(SOLEs)“we live in a world where children can figurethings out by themselves. But the existingteaching assumes that they cannot and,therefore, have to be taught. That has tochange and we must „teach‟ as little aspossible.” ~ SugataMitraInterview at http://gulfnews.com/news/world/india/indian-professor-calls-for-reinventing-education-system-1.1167649
Learning & Technology ModelsMassive Open Online Course (MOOCs)(de Waard, I., et al; 2011; Pappano, 2012)Courses or classes offered and taughtonline to anyone who wants to take them.One Stanford MOOC, Introduction toArtificial Intelligence had approximately150,000 students signed up!
