Empowering Teachers with Blended Learning Instructional Strategies

Traditionally, teachers have opened the door to their vault of knowledge in a limited context. In some cases, students have been for the most part “passive learners” and their learning has been dependent upon teachers and how far they can go in the confinement of their own classroom. The role of a teacher in a blended learning classroom is to give students the key to the vault so they can take as much (or as little) knowledge as they desire. Teachers can more effectively empower students in their desire to learn any content by integrating Constructivist Theory applications and utilizing 5E Learning Models of Instruction (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate & Evaluate) into instructional strategies. Session(s) are for teachers at any K-12 level and in any subject area. Teachers should have laptops / chromebooks to participate in the session.
