Do you have technology in your school that is merely sitting around, collecting dust? If you do, breathe new life into these technologies! We will discuss ways for you to get your staff excited about your technology again over the next four weeks.
This week, we will discuss blended training. Don’t just bring the students to the computer lab for a day of learning computer skills and then not use that technology continuously throughout the course. Without the continued use of learned technology skills, students are sure to soon lose many skills. A blended learning initiative will encourage the synchronous use of technology and the traditional classroom lessons, assignments, and projects to develop strong 21st century skills in your students.
The kickoff of a blended learning initiative will encourage teachers to dust off any unused technology in your school and develop lesson plans that take advantage of these forgotten tools. Backing a blended learning initiative will not only allow you to breathe new life into your unused technology, but it will also help you reach your ultimate goal of positively impacting student achievement in the classroom.
Next week, we will be discussing online support.
