Fist to Five:Statements for people to respond to:I am beginning to learn about blended learningI use blended learning in my classroomMy school is thinking about shifting to a blended learning modelMy school has enough technology to create a pilot blended learning programMy school has a way to host online curriculum2. Share: If I learn __________
  • Shout out: what do we know about blended learning?Make a list on poster-paper.
  • Watch first 3 mins of video…people can watch more on their own.
  • Reflection: In Writing, then Sharing3 New ideas2 Questions1 Concern

    2. 2. WHAT BRINGS YOU HERE? 1. Fist to Five 2. If I learn ________ it will have been worth coming here today.
    3. 3. What is blended learning?
    4. 4.
    5. 5. Blended Learning Learning occurs in both face-toface and online experiences. Learners have at least some control over the time, place, path and pace of their learning.
    6. 6. Blended Learning Assessment provides critical information about what one still has to learn. The learning path “adapts” based on the learner’s performance. Feedback is immediate and concrete.
    7. 7. Blended Learning Technology provides’ multiple pathways of access to the complex concepts students must master. Teachers can now provide customized guidance and coaching on how to think deeply about complex concepts.
    8. 8. Blended refers to a mix of online and face-to-face learning. The mix of each is up to an individual school. Blended learning programs look to leverage the best of face-to-face learning (interaction, caring relationships with adults, personalization, “just-in-time” coaching) with the best of online (personalization, adaptive curriculum, bringing the world to the student).

    10. 10. SHARE OUT • Which Model Is Most Interesting To You? • Which One Is Most Feasible For Your Classroom? A Pilot? Your School?
    11. 11. School Model • 8 hrs/wk of Personalized Learning Time (PLT) @ School • 8 hrs/wk of PLT @ Home • Each student has a Personalized Playlist accessed on-line. • Each course has 100 hrs. of Project Time.
    12. 12. Math Rotation • 3 math teachers teach a single course at the same time, for all students taking that course. • 3 Daily Rotations for each course: Direct Instruction, Self-Paced On-Line, Small Group. • One math teacher works with each rotation.
    13. 13. Math Rotation • Took down the walls. • Created a flexible classroom space. • Created a “genius bar” where students can make an apt. for a quick shot of support.
    14. 14. 50/50 Blend • 225 students • 5 teachers • 5 aides • 2.5% of the budget is allocated for technology • Per Pupil funding is ~$5,500.
    15. 15. 50/50 Blend • 50% of time is allocated to online, self-paced courses • 50% of time is allocated to work with teachers: 1:1, small group, class
    16. 16. Math Credit Recovery All math courses are available online. If students don’t complete a course, they can continue it in the math lab at their own pace, with a math teacher providing support.
    17. 17. Online collaborative space: students can interact with each other, teachers, experts. Ex: AP Course taught by a Bronx Teacher, with iSchool Students participating through Skype. Course material is online, students are working on interdisciplinary problem-based courses.
    18. 18. • Online, self-paced, personalized and adaptive curriculum • Teachers float, work with small groups and 1:1 • Daily analysis of data to determine who needs support that day
    19. 19. • Students organized by what they know and can do (not by age) • Small groups of students rotate on a customized schedule. • Online courses and teachers collaborate with face-to-face teachers.
    21. 21. How will this open up flexibility in your schedule?
    22. 22. How will it make your curriculum more CCR?
    23. 23. What are your technology needs and resources?
    24. 24. What does your space lend itself to?
    25. 25. What capacity do teachers need to build?
    26. 26. Who will provide or create, host and manage, your online curriculum?
    27. 27. INDIVIDUAL EXPLORATION Explore the videos, articles, blogs, and summary descriptions of the profiled blended learning schools
