Blended learning

Found this new Blended Learning Video because I subscribe to the Bozeman channel which Paul Anderson creates, as a teacher of sciences and biology in particular.In my opinion the video is very good because it ties in blended learning with the inquiry model of learning. It does not matter which model of inquiry learning you subscribe to you can see how blended learning is so effective. See More

How to Thrive Online

How to Thrive OnlineI watched this (50 minute long) video of Howard Rheingold, cyberculture expert and academic, on How to Thrive Online.  He is the author of the book Net Smart which outlines 5 literacies that we need to not just survive, but to thrive online.  While not specifically directed to young learners, it does very much reflect the literacies that we all need online and so I think outlines the critical literacies that we need to continually teach our learners.He calls these literacies…See More
