What is it Like to be a Blended Learning Teacher?

Celebrating blended learning for connected educator month!

Written by Jeff Gerlach on Friday, 17 October 2014.

As part of Connected Educator Month, I participated in a blended learning webinar this past week. The topic of conversation: What is it like to be a blended learning teacher?

I really enjoyed connecting with teachers across the country to hear about their experiences with blended learning and to talk about my own experiences. One of the key topics of conversation was the idea of using LMS student generated data to inform decision making. This is one of the most thoughtful and substantive conversations focusing on this topic that I’ve taken part in.

If you have a moment, watch the webinar. I look forward to continuing the conversation with you in the comments below or in the twittersphere.

*Note: You’ll be asked for a name and email to listen to the webinar. Any name or email is fine as your name or email is not recorded.

Connected Educator Month: Those who do, teach. Own it, worldwide.

A celebration of community, with educators at all levels, from all disciplines, moving toward a fully connected and collaborative profession. Convened by the connected education community, with the full support of the U.S. Department of Education, building on the success of previous years with hundreds of new events and activities from dozens of organizations and communities. We’ll be working together, in October and beyond, with all stakeholders, leaving no device unturned, no country or learning environment unexplored. Get involved at connectededucators.org.
