Blended Learning
Tucker, Catlin; Umphrey, Jan
Principal Leadership, v14 n1 p36-41 Sep 2013
Catlin Tucker, author of "Blended Learning in Grades 4-12," is an English language arts teacher at Windsor High School in Sonoma County, CA. In this conversation with "Principal Leadership," she defines blended learning as a formal education program in which a student is engaged in active learning in part online where they have some control over the time, place, and pace, and in part at a brick-and-mortar location away from home. In the course of this discussion, Tucker shares her views on how blended learning can engage students in meaningful ways and expand the classroom experience, how the teacher's role changes when a blended learning approach is used, important things to keep in mind when creating online components, and blended learning's compatibility with the Common Core State Standards. Her best bit of advice to school leaders and teachers who have reservations is to include teachers in conversations about blended learning, saying that "teachers will be more creative, energized, and motivated to embrace a blended model if they have the freedom to help decide what that change will look like for them and their students."
