Blended learning is a great topic to explore and there are so many different angles you can take on this topic. I really like the opportunity to look into online community like P2P to create a class and post an assignment. Are you giving directions on the type of assignment that we will be posting? Are we posting an assignment where students recieve computer-based or computer delivered learning? I think you might want to be more specific when writing up the directions for this part on what type of assignment we should be posting in the class we create. Maybe we can incorporate those virtual manipulatives in the last part of the assignment! (Just an idea.) I also wanted to learn more about the MOOC (from the Ed Tech Terms assignment - Week 1) so I think this is a great avenue for blended learning. You could also incorporate that term into your tech week assignment if you are interested in us persuing it more.
I really like the assignment that involves the online and in-class manipulatives. I often have to find virtual manipulatives that resemble an activity that I did in class for my cyber students and it always takes a lot of creativity to make sure the students are receiving the same type of instruction. Just restating my idea, I think it would be neat to post our lesson involving the virtual manipulative in the online class we create in part 1.
I also really like that you are bringing in issues relating to blended learning in your assignment. When posting this part of the assignment, I would include a video or article to help get the juices flowing for us when we are thinking about what type of issues to research online.
Your assignment really hits on so many different parts of blended learning, especially those that I personally want to look into when teaching cyber classes and onsite classes. I teach Algebra 1 onsite and through Adobe Connect (virtual classroom) and this topic is one that I think can really apply to my goals to enhance my virtual instruction. Looking forward to a great tech week with your blended learning assignments!
