What 2020 has taught us is that flexibility and adaptability is key and technology is our best friend, our P.A, our library, our shopping mall and now our classroom. The idea of a traditional classroom with face-to-face interaction is slowly becoming a thing of the past along with showing multiple videos, printing out multiple diagrams just to show where the nuclear is within the human cell. Now, it is all about experiencing it all, stimulating your student's minds, nurturing their creativity and turning the impossible possible.
So with that, we would like to introduce you to what teachers are now calling Blended Learning. Now, you all have probably heard that terminology been thrown around in articles, podcasts and educational seminars. But, do you actually know what it means? Do you know how it can help benefit teachers and your students?
First thing first, What is blended learning?
Putting it in simple terms, it has a similar structure to eLearning/ online learning, where technology is required for education in addition to face-to-face classroom learning, essentially capturing the best of both worlds. That way, the standard school syllabus can be taught both in the traditional classroom environment and at a distance (via online).
There are different types of blended learning models out there like ‘Station Rotation’ or ‘Project-Based’ blended learning or the most well known one the ‘Flipped Classroom’ Blended learning concept, but let’s save that discussion for another day.
Trying to find the right blended learning model that will work for your classroom and students can be a bit of a challenge and even overwhelming, especially when you don’t have the time to research the different learning approaches and models, so we have done the research for you. Introducing CoSpaces Edu.
Now, you are probably thinking, “What is CoSpaces? What makes it so special?” Well, let us entertain you with the idea of a virtual platform that can get your student’s creativity flowing, get them focused and make lesson planning efficient fun for you.
