This session will demonstrate a blended learning model for a Science classroom wherein students engage with content in a variety of ways, and at different paces. Students are provided with a clear structure for self-pacing and accountability. The model showcases the integration of a number of different technology tools, with non-tech workarounds for campuses not yet approaching a 1:1 student-device ratio. Finally, the model enables teachers to create small group learning environments within a larger classroom, which is useful for special education accommodation. Although the demonstration deals with science content, the model can easily be adapted to any subject. THIS IS AN IN-DEPTH VERSION of the session offered at the Blended Learning Summit. 

Attendees will wear two hats: teacher and student, to get a hands-on look at how blended learning can work in practice.

Please NOTE: This is NOT a training on BLEND platform (AISD's version of Canvas). This is about a classroom model that literally blends different kinds of learning. I will actually be using Google Classroom, but you could easily use the BLEND platform for the same purpose.
