Course Description

The course is designed to introduce K-12 teachers and the community to blended and online learning. In the first 4 weeks of the course learners will gain introductory knowledge of K12 blended and online teaching and learning. During the last 4 weeks learners will use this new knowledge to start designing and developing effective K12 blended and online learning experiences for K12 students. The course content was developed based on standards written by the International Association for K12 Online Learning (iNACOL).

Through the successful completion of weeks 1-4 of this course, you will gain introductory knowledge of effective K12 blended and online instruction and be able to: 

  • demonstrate knowledge about current trends and standards in K12 online teaching and learning.

  • demonstrate knowledge about best practice in online learning in content specific areas.
  • demonstrate knowledge about what it is like to work or learn in an online school.
  • demonstrate knowledge about current technology for online instruction.

Through the successful completion of weeks 5-8 of this course, you will demonstrate introductory skills of designing and developing K12 blended and online learning experiences by being able to:

Course Format

This class consists of the following elements:

  • Multiple video lectures from your instructor. These will be available starting Monday mornings.
  • Free downloadable readings. In efforts to make the course more accessible to all, there is no textbook.
  • Transcripts of the video lectures.
  • Links and handouts mentioned in video lectures.
  • One or more announcements from the instructor every week.
  • Discussion forums. These forums will help you apply the material by interacting with other students in the course.
  • One weekly quiz for each of modules 1-4 that covers the video lectures. These quizzes are previewed as embedded questions throughout the video lectures.
  • Study guide to prepare for the cumulative mid-point quiz.
  • A mid-point quiz consisting of 20 questions. You may take the mid-point quiz twice. The highest score will be counted. The mid-point quiz is cumulative, covering the first 4 weeks of material. It is an open-note and independent activity.
  • Modules 5, 6, & 7 each require a assignment that will be graded by your peers.
  • Modules 5, 6, & 7 each require you to complete 3 peer assessments (9).
  • Optional supplemental social media interaction using #ksuitecmooc

Collaboration

We highly recommend that teacher groups or whole schools take the course together. Meeting once per week in a face-to-face environment to discuss, share resources, and peer critique is advised; however, each person should complete independent assignments…no group projects. Your projects may be closely related, though. For example, in this course you will design a blended or online unit for your class. If a grade level team at the same school decides to divide up the curriculum such that each teacher designs a separate social studies unit for his/her grade level team, then the grade level team’s projects would closely relate while not becoming a single group project. Think professional development jigsaw activity!

Don’t worry if you don’t have a colleague to work with, you can take this class alone. Really you will never be alone! You could harness Google Hangouts or Skype to work with someone you meet in the discussion forums. Don’t be bashful!

Scheduling

To help you plan your time, here is the expected weekly workload:
Week 1: (5 hours) Jan. 6-12
Week 2: (5 hours) Jan 13-19
Week 3: (5 hours) Jan 20-26
Week 4: (5 hours) Jan 27-Feb 2
Week 5: (10 hours) Feb 3-9
Week 6: (10 hours) Feb 10-16
Week 7: (10 hours) Feb 17-23
Week 8: (<2 hours) Feb 24-Mar 3

If you are taking this course with your professional learning network or grade-level team, we recommend setting aside 1-2 hours each week to meet face-to-face or synchronously to discuss key points, individual progress, resources, and to give peer feedback.
