Presentation at ICERI 2013 in Sevilla (November 2013 - http://iated.org/iceri2013/ ) and INTED 2014 in Valencia (March 2014 - http://inted2014.org ).

The title of this presentation gives a promise. A thoughtful integration of physical- and online learning spaces can give teachers opportunities to meet increasing demands and expectations.

  • I hear from time to another people argue school classrooms have not changed from the old black and white photos that we see from schools in the 1950s. But while the basic set-up of the classroom remains the same – with students facing the teacher – teachers and students now have access to technology that gives them the opportunity to explore new teaching and learning possibilities.
  • The yearwas 1996 and thingswas different. I wasworking at Liland elementaryschool. This wastheyearthechangecame to me.

(2004): «Blended learning: Uncovering its transformative potential in higher education», University of Calgary Blended learning describedBlended learning is both simple and complex. At its simplest, blended learning is the thoughtfulintegration of classroom face-to-face learning experiences with online learning experiences. There isconsiderable intuitive appeal to the concept of integrating the strengths of synchronous (face-to-face) andasynchronous (text-based Internet) learning activities. At the same time, there is considerable complexityin its implementation with the challenge of virtually limitless design possibilities and applicability to somany contexts.To begin, it is important to distinguish blended learning from other forms of learning that incorporateonline opportunities. First, blended learning is distinguished from that of enhanced classroom or fullyonline learning experiences (seeFig. 1). However, it is not clear as to how much, or how little, onlinelearning is inherent to blended learning. In fact, this is only a rough, indirect measure that may bemisleading. The real test of blended learning is the effective integration of the two main components(face-to-face and Internet technology) such that we are not just adding on to the existing dominantapproach or method. This holds true whether it be a face-to-face or a fully Internet-based learningexperience. A blended learning design represents a significant departure from either of these approaches.It represents a fundamental reconceptualization and reorganization of the teaching and learning dynamic,starting with various specific contextual needs and contingencies (e.g., discipline, developmental level,and resources). In this respect, no two blended learning designs are identical. This introduces the greatcomplexity of blended learning.
  • These are two of many means schools and teachers have.The title of the presentation occurred when I was on a school visit and followed a teacher through a week. The teacher used two classrooms and utilised the properties of the two rooms at a very good way.
  • The online classroom gives structure to the teaching outside the classroom.It helped the studente to know what was planned and it also helkped them to stay focused.The online classroom gave structure to the teaching.
  • As a result of these observation did I write an article about the unified classroom.I first called it the blended classroom, but as the model has evolved, I have landed on the term unified classroom.
  • The unified classroom gives you a chance to extend activities long after classes have finished, so you can stretch time and re-engage your students in the work that they have done in class. In the same way, the unified classroom can be an important tool if you want to pre-teach before a class or course begins.Unified classrooms can also be used to give on-going feedback to students. Students can hand in work online and receive comments and advice before the next class, for example. They can see your comments on online discussions and blogs between classes. In addition, unified classrooms provide the opportunity for students to think about their answers before responding, enabling shy participants to join online discussions that they might not have joined in brick-and-mortar classrooms.

  • The teacher present the book and the students discuss what the book is about.A physical classroom has several advantages. Students meet face to face, make friends,  and communicate spontaneously. The teacher gets to know the students and has the opportunity to create an inspiring and safe atmosphere.
