I could use
some A LOT of advice! Next year, I will be blending my Spanish II class. This means that two days a week (including a long block), we will be meeting face to face and two days a week students will be meeting virtually. I have to finish my online part of the class by the end of June. I have started three units, but I worry about the repetitiveness of it. I don’t want students to dread virtual days. Here are some of my ideas so far:
-They will backchannel at times as well and participate in online discussions.
What else can I add? I want to incorporate more Zachary Jones materials because he does such a great job with his. If you could help me out by letting me know:
-What would spice this up?
-Is there another way that you incorporate technology in your class?
-Is there another blogger who teaches online/blended classes in the FL? (Or in general at this point)
-Any other advice that you have about teaching online/blended classes?
My full class will debut in late summer, but for now, thanks for your help!
