The tenth session that I am blogging here at SITE 2017 related to K-12 Online and Blended Learning is:
Navigating the Blended Learning Classroom: One Teacher’s Perspective on Designing and Delivering Blended Instruction
Sign up as a Presiderfor 1:45 PM-2:45 PM in Bonnell.
In this paper, we report on findings from the initial phase of a research study on blended teaching and learning. We focus on the experiences of one teacher as she designs and delivers a blended learning course in a mid-sized high school piloting a school-within-a-school program. Particular themes on benefits, challenges, and necessary supports are discussed and situated within existing literature on technological pedagogical alignment, teacher identify, and teacher beliefs regarding blended teaching. We include implications for administrators and practitioners as well as recommendations for further research to better understand teachers’ experiences when transitioning to a blended learning context.
Note that I am in a different session right now (as SITE has a habit this week of double booking several items). So if there is anyone in the room that would like to share their notes, please post them in the comments below.
