Introduction to Blended Learning Using Schoology

This course will introduce the pedagogy of a blended learning environment to secondary teachers. By the end of this course, teachers will have an immersive experience in a blended classroom environment and will have a final portfolio/unit to use in their classrooms. The course will combine in-class instruction and virtual self-guided learning assignments. Teachers will be immersed in 21st century tools through online applications and a learning management system. Best practices will be encouraged through selected readings from online resources and professional readings. Collaboration will include small group sessions, sharing of student examples, discussions of online journal readings, and peer to peer feedback. Schoology will be used to deliver and manage class resources, assessments, and online discussions. This course correlates to the C of C conceptual framework and theme of making the teaching and learning connection.
