In our previous blog posts in this series we looked at the most commonly used blended learning models, the flipped classroom and station rotation. In this and the subsequent post, we will be looking at particular contexts for instituting blended learning and discuss which models fit those particular uses.
This is the second of two blog posts discussing dynamic education and digital tools. Previously, factors to consider when creating a learning interaction were examined. In this post, specific examples of these factors are shown as well as digital tools and how they play a role in critical thinking on behalf of the students.

After looking at the flipped classroom model in our last post, this time we will be discussing the benefits of another frequently used model, rotating stations. While the flipped approach is the dominant model in higher education, the stations approach is the most popular in the K-12 school environment. That is due principally to the fact that this model combines great flexibility—with a variety of customization and supervisory options—with multiple peer collaboration possibilities. We will examine each of these in more detail.
This is the first of two blog posts discussing how education has evolved over the years and how the responsibility of the teacher has grown. Technology is a big part of both of these and this first post examines how technology is being incorporated into online education and key factors to consider when creating online content so that it is beneficial to both the student and teacher.
This is the third, and final, in a series of blog posts addressing various aspects of creating a blended learning environment. In the second post (Designing for Blended Learning (Is it Right for You?)), we discussed what factors to consider when you're thinking about redesigning a course for blended delivery. In this post, we discuss the implementing of a blended course and the upfront planning involved.
This is the second in a series of blog posts addressing various aspects of creating a blended learning environment. In the first post (What is Blended Learning and Why it Matters), we discussed what blended learning is and how to structure your course to make it successful for both educators and students. In this post, we discuss what factors to consider when you're designing for blended learning delivery.

This series is a follow-up to the series on blended learning from last fall. Those posts, based on a course I teach regularly, discussed the basic what, why, and how of blended learning. In this new series, we will be widening the focus, starting with a discussion of different available models of blended learning for both higher-ed and K-12 schools. That will lead into a discussion of the particular benefits and drawbacks of each model. We will also be looking at the related issue of how to tailor a blended learning approach to achieve maximum benefits for all students, through personalized learning and sticky content. Finally, we will look at the opportunities to expand the reach of the blended/online course through the use of mobile technology and micro learning.
