An Overview of Blended Learning and Station Rotation
The Station Rotation model of blended learning involves students rotating through different stations, with one station relying on online instructional aids. Other stations might include activities such as teacher-led small group instruction, group projects, individual/peer tutoring, hands-on activities, and/or pencil-and-paper assignments. Participants will engage in an interactive professional learning session using breakout rooms in Zoom to model station rotation.
See examples of teacher-created station rotation lesson plans (PDF) from the UTeach Foundations of Blended Learning Course.
UTeach has compiled over 100 individual blended learning lesson plans, organized by grade level and subject area. Sign up here to see station rotation lesson plans for grades 6–12 math and science.
An Overview of Blended Learning and Personalized Learning
The creation of a Personalized Learning Plan involves designing customized lessons and activities to accommodate individual students' learning path and pace. Customized lessons should include the incorporation of blended learning strategies to facilitate student content mastery. As students work through personalized learning pathways, assessments should be embedded and continual feedback provided. Personalized learning plans such as playlists and choice boards fit well into many of the blended learning models. Participants will engage in an interactive professional learning session using breakout rooms in Zoom to model personalized learning.
