Naace conference 2014 - The teacher role in the blended classroom

Get ideas and inspiration on how teachers can utilise the combination of physical- and online learning spaces and the intersection between them. More than ten years has passed since the university professors Heather Kanuka and Randy Garrison at University of Calgary defined blended learning as the thoughtful integration of classroom face-to-face learning experiences with online learning experiences. It is still my favourite definition of blended learning as it emphasises the aspect of thoughtfulness. But how can a ‘thoughtful blended learning’ design look like? The breakout session introduce the concept and give some proactical examples of how a teacher at Kibworth primary school utilises the benefits of the blended classroom while teaching persuasive writing and literacy.
