In his video (#beyouedu- Finding Your Swagger) on his blog, Peoplegogy, he discusses the importance of having confidence and being yourself. He says if you want to do something, don't be scared, just go for it.
This is good. Thanks for the reminder that it is important to be confident. Too many people are worried about what others will think of them. It is important to be yourself and do what ever it is that you want to do.
In his video of his interview with Kimberly Wright, they discuss blended learning. She says that this way of teaching allows students to dictate their own learning. Blended learning gives teachers more time to interact with the students instead of standing in from of the classroom the entire time. They discuss different ideas about blended learning. Kimberly shares some experience she has with introducing blended learning to other teachers. She says that one of the response that she get is that teachers feel like they are being replaced, but she makes it clear that teachers are not replaceable.
This is a very good explanation of blended learning for me. Using blended learning is a way to keep the students interested in learning and allows them be in charge of their learning.
