Blended Learning vs. Tech Integration
We've had much success, but make no mistake, transforming teaching to provide students with a blended learning experience is no small task. One of our favorite articles on the topic, The Basics of Blended Instruction, by Catlin R, Tucker, provides some great tips for teachers looking to pursue blended learning.
One thing we observed in working with teachers is that it's extremely difficult to wrap your head around the difference between tech integration and blended learning. Truth be told, we were probably a bit fuzzy on it ourselves for quite some time!
In order to help explain the difference, we created a graphic based on Dr. Ruben R. Puentedura's SAMR Model.
If you find the graphic or presentation useful, you are welcome to use it, just be sure to keep the Adams 12 logo in place, and leave a comment to share how you help clarify the difference for people!
