Webinar Overview​

The webinar will reveal how blended learning bears the markings of a “disruptive” innovation because it can expand access and affordability of customized, flexible instruction.

 

Participants will learn about distinct models of blended learning and where they are best suited for implementation. The webinar  will include a blended learning design activity that participants can implement in their own schools and classrooms.

Background

Over 10 years ago, the Christensen Institute began researching an emerging phenomenon: some schools were beginning to bring online learning into their brick-and-mortar school environments. After a few years of documenting early innovators in this area, their researchers published a definition of blended learning and a taxonomy of its models.

 

More than simply a set of descriptions, the research done by them actually helps educators understand how each blended learning model is well-suited to different circumstances. With this understanding, educators can make implementation decisions that are more likely to succeed because they are rooted in sound theoretical foundations about how innovation works.

This hands-on webinar will equip its participants with knowledge and skills to answer the following:

  • What is the difference between “blended” and “tech-rich”?

  • How does blended learning enable personalization?

  • Which blended learning models are best for my unique goal for my classroom or school?

Methodology

  • Interactive presentation

  • Participants will get a chance to practice what they are learning in  small groups (online break-out rooms)

  • Post workshop handouts/resources
