An overview of blended learning

  1. 1. An Overview of Blended Learning By Melissa Winfield-Corbett
  2. 2. What is Blended Learning?
  3. 3. Components of Blended Learning
  4. 4. 4 Classifications
  5. 5. 1. The Rotational Model • In this model of learning, students rotate on a fixed schedule or at the teacher’s discretion between learning modalities, at least one of which is online learning. This model enables students to delve into various types of learning scenarios. This model comprises the components most associated with traditional teaching methods.
  6. 6. 2. The Flex Model • In this model content and instruction are delivered primarily by the Internet. Students are allotted to move on an individually customized, fluid schedule among learning modalities, and the teacher is on- site. The teacher provides face- to-face support on a flexible and adaptive as-needed basis through activities such as small- group instruction, group projects, and individual tutoring. (In the model to the left, P stands for paraprofessional and T stands for teacher.)
  7. 7. 3. The Self Blended Model • In this model students choose to take one or more courses entirely online to supplement their traditional courses and the teacher is the online teacher. Students may take the online courses either on school grounds or off- site.
  8. 8. 4. The Enhanced Virtual Model • In this model students divide their time between attending a school campus and learning remotely using online delivery of content and instruction. In this model students seldom attend the school campus every weekday.
