In the Foundations of Blended Learning Capstone, participants write a reflection paper to answer the driving question, "How do I best combine the technology-enhanced tools, differentiation strategies, and management tools to transform my classroom into a blended learning environment? "
In this assignment, Develop a 5E Differentiated Blended Lesson Plan, from Module 3, Tools for Managing a Blended Learning Environment, educators synthesize what they have learned to create a lesson plan that differentiates content, process, or product. The lesson plan should make accommodations according to student readiness, interest, and learning profile, and include elements of differentiation throughout each stage of the 5E learning cycle. Assessment should be embedded throughout each phase of the lesson.
In this assignment, educators develop a 21st-century classroom management plan based on information found in their research.
Participants create an Action Plan for incorporating blended learning into their classroom, campus, or district.
Participants create a Personalized Learning Plan, designing customized lessons and activities to accommodate individual students' learning path and pace.
