Topic of Research
The ultimate goal of my innovation plan is to have teachers across my campus fully integrating technology into their daily lessons through a blended learning model. In order for teachers to fully understand what it is I’ll be asking them to do, I believe that they will need to experience blended learning themselves. I will use this format to teach them about how they can structure their classrooms and why they should incorporate technology at such a high level.
Purpose of Study
Many traditional teaching methods are no longer valuable for today’s students. Today’s teachers need to embrace technology and use it to enhance the learning in their classrooms.
How might a blended learning professional development experience impact teachers’ attitudes toward implementing blended learning in their own classrooms?
How many teachers of those that participated in a blended learning professional development experience will implement blended learning in their classrooms?
- Triangulation Mixed-Methods design using both Qualitative and Quantitative data.
- Descriptive Research using observations.
- Case studies of the teachers who participate in the professional development experience, including the use of surveys and interviews.
