Preparing Pre-Service Teachers for Success in Blended Learning Models


Screen shot 2014-01-17 at 1.27.46 PMNearly all K-12 schools are expanding their use of technology to support student learning, and many of them are implementing blended learning models. By definition, blended models include online learning opportunities that empower students with some control over the time, place, path, and pace of their learning. Therefore new teachers need additional preparation and perspective so they can effectively leverage new technologies to meet the continually evolving needs of all students.  In the Blended Learning community’s January webinar, Dr. Tim Hudson, Senior Director of Curriculum Design at DreamBox Learning, shared ways to prepare pre-service teachers for success in blended learning models by helping them understand how to make the best use of precious class time when they enter the profession.  Topics covered included: rigorous standards, valid assessment, analyzing data, useful feedback, differentiation, personalization, and research-based pedagogy. Tim provided helpful tools to help prepare pre-service teachers for success in blended learning models.
