If you want to work smarter versus harder in this time of distance learning, this book is for you! Schools and teachers worldwide face unique challenges as they work to accommodate and transform the methods in which they provide quality learning and teaching through various formats of distance learning. The Quick Guide to Simultaneous, Hybrid, and Blended Learning provides the needed clarity and specificity in how to navigate developing and managing quality teaching and learning experiences in any distance learning environment or platform.
As an educator in a large urban district that utilizes all three of these models to help us deliver on our promise of equity, I can honestly say that The Quick Guide to Simultaneous, Hybrid, and Blended Learning offers every educator the entry point they need to increase students’ learning, collaboration, and agency in any context. Through multiple research-based, classroom-tested practices and examples, this book gives educators the practical strategies and structures we need to enhance our simultaneous instruction.
This is the book that I have been waiting for! After schools shut down because of the pandemic and we realized that our return to school would not be “business as usual,” I was having a difficult time imagining what school would look like in a simultaneous learning environment. This guide gives me permission to use what I know but extends the paradigm in which I was thinking. Clarity, a crucial component in designing effective learning experiences, is addressed and amplified in this guide to help allay some of my concerns.
This book is a multipurpose tool for the educator’s toolbox. The information and examples combine for methodologies to not only be used during a pandemic but to truly provide a bridge into future learning and instruction.
The Quick Guide to Simultaneous, Hybrid, and Blended Learning by Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, John Almarode, and Aleigha Henderson-Rosser is a practical guide for educators at all levels. From definitions to learning models to digital tools, this book has a little bit of everything for educators who are implementing remote learning (and aren’t we all?)! The potential learning models described are especially helpful for academic administrators determining how to pivot to remote learning, and weekly plans for each learning type support classroom implementation.
This is a must-have for all involved with thinking about and involved with distance learning. This book is insightful and provides administrators and teachers with the tools and questions to think about when planning high-quality, rigorous, and engaging lessons—whether they are doing so asynchronously or synchronously. Examples and key insights from educators already immersed in the field provide yet another handy resource from which teachers and administrators can easily flip through and glean ideas.
Managing technology has been a challenge for our teachers and students. The Quick Guide to Simultaneous, Hybrid, and Blended Learning gives teachers the techniques to deal with technical complexities in smart and creative ways. We need to save time for meaningful instruction and one of the ways we can do that is not to narrate all that we’re doing to students. Give students the time to read the instructions, charts, and other visual aids, and let them take ownership of the learning process. Students are loving that autonomy!
