Published on

Presentation slides from workshop at itslearning user conference in the Netherlands 4th February 2014. The workshop focus on the opportunities the blended classroom (the combination of physical- and online classrooms) offers, and the potential teachers can utilise if teaching is planned in such a way that the best characteristics of both classroom are utilised. Several examples of learning activities are demonstrated in order to give ideas and inspiration of how teachers can utilise a blended classroom to enhance learning experiences and empower students in their learning.
