Blended Learning: Empowering Students for Success in the Digital Age

Course #: EDUC_717X

Semester Credits: 3

Cost: $345.00


This course will focus on the current "hot topic" in education, blended learning. Blended learning is utilizing technology for effective instruction through brick-and-mortar and online-based instruction. Blended learning goes beyond merely bringing technology into the classroom. This model helps create an individualized approach as it extends the curriculum for deeper analysis of a topic. Students come to school eager to learn new information, and with the help of digital media they remain engaged and focused to absorb what is being taught. This course centers on the idea that there is a difference between technology for learning and technology for teaching.

The difference is that technology for learning focuses on the end result, where students are actually retaining the information taught, rather than on the delivery system (i.e. SMART boards or student apps). It is important for teachers to understand that bringing technology into a classroom just to have technology is not going to improve student learning. A well-developed plan for how and when technology should be used will be the starting point of successful blended learning.
