Blended Learning Cycle
Paul Anderson created a podcast dedicated to explaining the Blended Learning Cycle. Blended learning takes the compelling parts of online, mobile, and classroom learning and blending them together in the classroom. There are 5 E's to the learning cycle and they are: engage, explore, evaluate, expand, and explain. First you want to start with an engaging question for students to explore, and then you explain the phenomenon; expand upon that and then evaluate it. There are 6 parts to Mr. Anderson's blended learning cycle: 1- Question (hook) 2- Investigation/ Inquiry 3- Video 4- Elaboration 5- Review 6- Summary Quiz. This is just a step by step list of how Mr. Anderson uses blended learning in his classroom and I think it seems quite effective.
