Blended Learning in the Science Classroom


Why do Blended Learning?

Blended Learning is a great way to incorporate different modes of learning so that you can reach more students and help them understand in the method that works best for them.  

It helps students learn about the topic through guided inquiry, group collaboration, and allows them to become responsible for their learning.  

It also allows the teacher to focus on a smaller group of students so that you can better meet their needs.  

What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning can take on many models but all of them involve integrating technology into the classroom.  The three most common models in schools are stations, flipped learning, and lab rotations.  

Stations involve three areas set up in one classroom.  One area is for online instruction, another area is for group collaboration, and the third area is for teacher-led instruction.  

Flipped learning is where the students learn the basic information outside of class, usually by watching a video and taking notes.  They then use class time for practice and projects.  

Lab rotation is similar to stations however the online learning occurs outside of class in a computer lab.  The students learn the information and do some practice on the computer which tracks their progress.  They then meet with a teacher that will do some direct instruction based on how they did on the computer.

This is absolutely one of my favorite resources I have purchased through TPT and I spend more than $400 a year! It has so many interesting aspects. My students really enjoyed learning with these labs.

I bought this lesson with all of my students in mind, but gave special consideration to my students that have IEPs and seem to struggle with staying on task. We're currently in the process of working through the prokaryote and eukaryote cells and I'm finding this to be so convenient for my students. It's something that they'll be able to easily refer back to also. Thank you for creating such a colorful, fun and useful resource!
