In recent times, teaching and learning methods have a direct impact on students' learning experiences. Blended learning is a combination of face-to-face and online delivery methods which influences students' perceptions on the learning environments to a great extent. Learning analytics is a growing trend at all levels of education. The objective of the paper is to examine the student’s experiences in blended learning environments. Relevant data has been collected from undergraduate and postgraduate students who are exposed to a blended learning environment while learning programming subjects.

How to Integrate Computational Thinking with “Look Fors”

Article | August 24, 2020

Digital Promise has been working with districts and educators from across the United States to integrate computational thinking (CT) and computer science (CS) into K-12 classrooms. We’ve developed “Look for” documents to support teachers and administrators in envisioning how this fusion could work in elementary and middle school classrooms. Interviews with teachers, administrators, and other researchers showed us that “Look for” documents offer teachers and administrators a mutual starting point for collaborative visioning, self-assessment, and collective goal-setting for classroom practice. They remind administrators of “walk through” documents or forms that are often used during classroom observations to help administrators focus on specific elements of instruction so they can provide rich feedback to educators.

Using Google’s virtual reality tour creator, Google Maps Street View and VR headsets, students with disabilities were able to tour downtown Danvers at their own pace in preparation for a real-life walk around the area as part of a life skills class. It was a “low-stakes opportunity to practice critical life skills,” Jeff Liberman, the district’s technology director, tells The Hechinger Report. “VR allows students to go places and see things virtually without actually having to go there.” Beyond applications in assistive learning, the use of immersive technologies such as VR and augmented reality continues to grow in K–12 education.
