Blended Learning in Action: A Practical Guide toward Sustainable Change
Tucker, Catlin R.; Wycoff, Tiffany; Green, Jason T.
Blended learning has the power to reinvent education, but transitioning to a blended model is challenging. Blended learning requires a fundamentally new approach to learning as well as a new skillset for both teachers and school leaders. Loaded with research, examples, and resources, "Blended Learning in Action" demonstrates the advantages a blended model has over traditional instruction when technology is used to engage students both inside the classroom and online. Readers will find: (1) Breakdowns of the most effective classroom setups for blended learning; (2) Tips for leaders; (3) Ideas for personalizing and differentiating instruction using technology; (4) Strategies for managing devices in classrooms and schools; and (5) Study questions to facilitate professional development and deeper learning. Written with system-wide transformation in mind, this is the resource teachers and leaders need to help them shift to a blended learning model and transform education for the 21st century.
