Digital and Collaborative Learning - Blended Learning Week 3
This video shows the use of Edpuzzle. We have used screen o matic to capture our google slides. We also used a voice over to discuss what Edpuzzle was.
Edpuzzle would be good for creating Flipped learning videos to explain a concept or idea.
You can create your own content or use content from the sight and add to it.
It could also be used by the children to create video showing their understanding of a concept or to share their knowledge with others.
Within a formal programme of learning, students study using a mix of on-site face to face learning and some degree of online learning, which may take place on site and/or remotely. There are several models ofblended learning, which vary in their balance between the face to face and online learning, and how much of the online study is on site or off site. Some models emphasise some kind of rotation between learning activities, which may be more or less prescriptive, depending on the context. The important thing is that there must be some element of face to face learning, contrasting with, for example, MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses) or distance learning courses, where all the learning is online.
The flipped classroom is a form of blended learning that brings together advances in education and technology to deliver instruction online, outside of class, typically via video-based materials, and moving 'homework' into the classroom. The end result is a personalized, engaging learning experience for every student — whatever their learning style, pace, or ability.
The definition of blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns:
at least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace;
at least in part in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home;
and the modalities along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience.
The majority of blended-learning programs resemble one of four models: Rotation, Flex, A La Carte, and Enriched Virtual. The Rotation model includes four sub-models: Station Rotation, Lab Rotation, Flipped Classroom, and Individual Rotation.
Flex Model - content that is personalised that they self manage while the teacher is with a group - Chn choose what they are doing using Google sites/
TeachingTeach and respond to learners in a knowledgeable and adaptive way to progress their learning at an appropriate depth and pace.
