Elementary Education: Intro to Blended Teaching

4-1 Purpose

Blended Teaching Tree Graphic

The purpose of these chapters are to help you prepare to design and implement blended learning within the Elementary Education (ElEd) classroom. The image on the cover of the book shows a broad range of disciplines, each represented by a branch of the tree. The four core skills for blended teaching are represented by the common roots of the tree that feed the branches.

While there are some broad commonalities in how blended learning looks across contexts, there are also many subtle and unique approaches to blended teaching within each grade level.  As a result, this set of chapters is geared towards providing examples of blended teaching that are specific to the ElEd classroom.

In these chapters we also use examples from practicing teachers. They will help you see blended teaching in the ElEd context through the lens of the following blended teaching competencies: online integration, online interaction, data practices, and personalization.
