VoiceThread - Support - Resources - Publications K-12 - 3 views

  • Abstract: In this paper we share our experiences with using asynchronous video communications to increase teacher immediacy and social presence during a technology integration course for pre-service teachers. We describe three cases where asynchronous video was used to facilitate instructor-student and peer-to-peer communications. The online tools used were Facebook, VoiceThread, and video blogs created by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Brigham Young University (BYU). Our initial findings indicate that the use of regular video instructor-student and peer-to-peer communication can be an effective way to improve instructor immediacy and social presence in an online environment while maintaining the flexibility that draws students to online learning.
    Voicethread uses technology to combine the visual with audio interpretations.  I have used VT in my middle school art classes where students created the visual (illustration for the book), wrote the text, and then recorded their version of the book. This site gives support for using VT in the classroom.

The rise of K-12 blended learning: Profiles of emerging models | Innosight Institute - 2 views

  • Definition of blended learning In a field with significant confusion around what K−12 blended learning is, the 40 programs converged under a simple, umbrella definition. First, in all of the blended programs, the students learned in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home at least some of the time. Second, in all of the cases, the students experienced online delivery with some control over the time, place, path, and/or pace. These two requirements, then, start to distinguish blended learning from other types of learning.

Designed for Learning!: Make it Blended! - 8 views

  • Blended learning is not a new thing. It is not a radical concept. It is not a new-age way of thinking about learning. As Elliott Masie puts it: “We are, as a species, blended learners.” So, the blend existed much before we understood and (re)defined it.
