A conversation with Andrew about online and blended learning

Written by Dave Goodrich, Jeff Gerlach on Friday, 04 April 2014.

If you pay any attention to the news about innovative, passionate and award winning educators in Michigan, you have probably heard of Andrew Vanden Heuvel (@avheuv). Andrew is a notoriously creative and engaging AP physics and astronomy instructor who is the brain behind STEMbite lessons. These bite-sized science and math video lessons make connections to everyday life, and are captured from Andrew’s own perspective using Google Glass. He reflects on these lesson creating experiences at the Teaching with Glass blog. In addition to being a Michigan Online Teacher of the Year, Andrew has authored a featured TED-Ed lesson on the topic of The Moon Illusion and even was a featured Google Glass Explorer. Using glass, he took a classroom on a virtual field trip into the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. We reached out to Andrew to see if we could capture some of his thoughts about all things blended and online learning. He was kind enough to converse with us and share his valuable experiences and insights.
