"Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is most important."
- Bill Gates
Thus our focus is only on hybrid (or blended) learning, which is the best way to integrate both the critical role of a teacher and the benefits of technology.
Here is what some teachers have to say about their hybrid learning experience:
- "The combination of both face-to-face learning and online learning allowed me to both personally interact with students and monitor their progress. Overall, the hybrid course was a wonderful experience for both me and my students." Ken Logan (Math Teacher)
- "One of my favorite exercises is peer collaboration and editing of essays and projects. The students truly enjoy sharing their work with others. Through discussion groups, students have the opportunity to improve their writing and get more ideas from others in class."Holly Wilson (English Teacher)
- “Students as independent learners makes them more responsible for their learning, thus improving outcomes”. Lisa Dawley (Chair of the Department of Educational Technology Boise State University and Thesys Advisory Board member)
