Mr. Kelly, do you think common core will push more teachers towards blended learning?
Definitely. Common core pushes for the integration of technology in the classroom. But, I think blended learning could be adopted with our current standards.
Do you feel teachers are discouraged from integrating technology because it can take up too much time?
Yes. Finding the right resources can take a lot of time. However, there are many resources out there made specifically for teachers that will help them find the right tools for their classroom.
What do you suggest for teachers who may not have many resources available to them?
Well, when I taught at Mariposa I used to schedule many of my classes in the computer lab. Many teachers do not make the best out of the resources they do have.
I also suggest teachers develop a universal resource for their classes. Such as a google site or their own website as a source for guidence or reference.
