First of all, blended learning programs have the ability to gather all the students’ data. As a consequence, teachers can easily know the weakness area of each individual student, and where he or she needs a little more aid and act accordingly (“Five Benefits of Blended Learning”). In addition, a test can be scored immediately. As a result, the teacher does not have to consume time and effort marking the tests. Other than that, students can instantly see their grades which are automatically accomplished on their gradebook.
Benefits of Blended Learning: The benefits of blended learning are for both teacher as well as the students. For the teacher, as she handles group of students at different times she can handle them easily and can concentrate every individual. This in turn helps the students for better understanding. For students blended learning enables them to learn through variety of activities that helps them to understand the concept easily. Self-pacing for slow or quick learners reduces stress, and increases satisfaction.
Blended learning has been widely used in the academic setting and is defined to integrate e-learning with a variety of other approaches to create an integrated learning experience. Bersin (2004) further defines blended learning as the combination of different training “media” (technologies, activities, and types of events) to create an optimum training program for a specific audience. The term “blended” means that traditional instructor-led training is being supplemented with other electronic formats. Singh and Reed (2001) also describe the dimensions of blending at the simplest level, which is a blended learning experience combines offline and online forms of learning where the on-line learning usually means “over the internet or intranet,” and offline learning happens in a more traditional classroom setting. We assume that even the offline learning offerings are managed through an online learning system.
In recent years, blended learning has become part of the educational landscape (Wu et. al., 2008). A “Blended Learning” term is being used with the increased of the frequency in both academic and corporate circles. In 2003, the American Society for Training and Development identified blending learning as one of the top ten trends to emerge in the
The disadvantages may outweigh the benefits for this topic, but teachers must look past the disadvantages and do what they were meant to do, teach. The Smarter Balanced Assessment tool was put in place to see the progress of the school and the impact the teachers were having on the students. One of the main benefits is the fact that there is clear data to determine the impact the teacher is having on the student. If the teacher is doing a good job at explaining and teaching the material then the student’s scores should reflect it. The data gained from the test also helps the teachers realize what subject may be a problem area for his or her students.
In recent years, collaborative learning (CL) has increasingly gained currency in learning approach at university. With the increasing number of CL theory, research and practice with positive results, collaborative learning has become one of the most efficient methods in learning. That is the reason why it is widely used and applied at schools and at universities all over the world. It is difficult to come to the conclusion that collaborative learning is better than individual learning, but it is undeniable that the benefits of group work bring to the students. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to emphasize the prevalent advantages of group work: help student to be confident; develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills and develop
Fragmented learning is a reform of knowledge communication and absorption. It adapts to the needs of social development. As a result, it is quickly accepted by the public. There is no doubt that it has its drawbacks, but this is due to the character of fragmented learning . We should think about fragmented learning deeply so that we can make a better utilization.
There are many ways of comprehending information to further one 's education in life. Students can be in study groups that meet at various areas; such as a house, restaurant, or even the library. Students need to learn new skills, tasks, and the ability to stay up with current situations. But, no one learns the same way as others. Classification of learning styles that can help students strategize study time and get the best results without causing stress or headaches, there are four types of learning.
In the blended learning instructor establish learning objectives, assign learning tasks, interact with students, give feedback, and evaluate students’ achievement. It’s help to identify student problems and how to improve the ability to solve
