This course doesn't just talk about putting theory into practice; it takes you through a step-by-step approach to building the competencies you need to begin or continue to transform your classroom.  And while it is helping you develop competencies and skills, it is also helping you build your personal library of student-tested resources.  During the course you will create, implement and revise a problem-based lesson using educational technology as well as develop a list of problem-based learning projects for future use.   Deepen your understanding of new and updated instructional models then apply those models to a lesson and try it with your students.  

During this course you will build 

  • A Problem-Based lesson using instructional technology
  • A Revised lesson specifically targeted at blended instruction
  • A list of PBL and Blended-learning projects to use in the future

I learned a lot and the teacher videos taught me how to flip my classroom or embrace a blended environment. Thank you for offering free, useful classes for teachers!

This course did a great job defining Blended Learning and its various models. Although my school has been the model Blended Learning facility in my district, now I feel knowledgeable and ready to transform my classroom.
