Short Description

Blended learning is the standard for the 21st-century educator who is expected to provide instruction in both online and face-to-face learning environments using technology and appropriate pedagogical skills. However, there exist a lack of research geared specifically to the K-12 learning community pertaining to the unique pedagogical skills required for teaching in the online learning environment. This session will explore how distance learning is being conducted in the K-12 learning environment at the traditional brick-and-mortar schools.

Abstract

Exploring Teachers’ Perception of Professional Development for a Blended Learning Environment: A Qualitative Case Study is a 20 minutes session designed for the K-12 learning community. The presenter will discuss the transition of the traditional classroom teacher to the online learning environment and the unique pedagogical skills required for teaching in a blended learning environment. Also, the findings from the recent case study which was conducted in the state of Florida will be highlighted.

The purpose of this qualitative case study was to explore teachers' perceptions of received professional development designed to prepare them for the paradigm shift of teaching in a blended learning environment. The theoretical framework guiding this qualitative case study were constructivism and the TPACK. This session is aligned with the theme in that distance learning has become evident in the traditional brick-and-mortar schools. Many states and local school districts are requiring public school students to participate in some form of online learning prior to graduation. The incorporation of online learning at brick-and-mortar schools in the traditional classroom is known as blended or hybrid learning in which this session will address through the completed research study.
