Full Session Description:
This session will focus on how to create a “Blended Classroom” online - the Future Classroom. Based on our programs teaching International students in China, with the teachers in Canada, the teachers with www.GlobalEd.ca had to push their “online teaching boundaries”. We use a Moodle LMS, Flipped Classroom ideas, synchronous course structure, weekly f2f videoconferencing, interactive course design, web 2.0 tools and most importantly encourage a positive communicative digital learning environment. We also proudly developed an ESL program using the same model - TAL (Technology Assisted Learning). How do we do it? Please come and see how we can break down the four walls of the classroom and develop a new role for 21st Century Teachers together.
Hi, Verena. Sounds like great work. We do have a non-commercial policy for the conference presentations, and it looks like this is a commercial session. Am I missing something?
OK, I understand now! :)
I appreciate your feedback and I will focus on the "how", the process of teaching online using a Blended Learning approach - I would love some suggestions on how others are integrating online learning into their F2F classrooms- what does that "look like?" to someone else?
