Here is a short visual we created for teachers explaining the core notions behind the concept of Blended Learning. We have also included a collection of what we believe are some essential web tools for classrooms that adopt a blended learning model of instruction. You can share, print and use the visual the way you want as long as you credit us as the source.
What is blended learning:
It is an instructional methodology, a teaching and learning approach that combines face-to-face classroom methods with computer mediated activities to deliver instruction.
Blended learning models:
According to Dreambox, Blended learning has 6 main models:
1- Face-to-face driver
This is ideal for individualized learning and is performed on a case by case basis
Involves a regular flipping between traditional Classroom teaching and online learning
Instruction is done primarily online and is supplemented by on-site personal support
4- Online lab
Online teaching is done entirely in a traditional classroom setting under the supervision of an instructor
Students have the option to enhance their learning through online courses
6- Online Driver
Instruction is done entirely online with intermittent instructor check-ins.
