In this publication we will evaluate the online, hybrid, and blended learning environments.

What Are The Perceptions Of Online And Hybrid/blended Learning In Relation To Traditional Courses via GM
I am a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) teacher with over 25 years’ experience who taught STEM-focused courses in high school, college, and graduate school. I am one of the state’s early adopters of blended learning and have taught online courses from start to finish. My new book, Truth in Marketing: The Cutting Edge of marketing uses the tools of academia and common sense to “shed light on the world of marketing as well as relate it to how we buy, make and sell our own brand,” advises: “marketing is a discipline of evolving knowledge, thoughts, and behaviors. Therefore, marketers have to be skilled and social.” Marketing. Common sense. Okay, clear.
What If A Unique Composite of In-school and Online Education Does Not Extend Beyond The Classroom? Or More Likely, The Classroom?
What If Total Amount Of Knowledge Has No One In Control? Here I offer some strategies for ensuring an interactive learning experience that works for all stakeholders. It is my hope that this book will lead you to develop your own methods to enhance your marketing efforts at home, school, and work.
I believe that the traditional approach for hybrid/blended learning (ITLE), which is now seeing significant growth in most high schools, does not adequately meet the needs of all stakeholders—students, parents, and educators.
I also discovered a lack of true, co-creative, hands-on learning where students experience and take ownership of their learning—skill-based and highly interactive learning. It is common for a teacher to list 5+ learning objectives and give students (or parents or teachers) an assignment to do their best to achieve it. But then how do you quantify success? I don’t want students to learn with paper and pencil in their notebooks! It needs to be multi-faceted, fun, and enriching for all involved. And it need to be interactive in that every student has a voice. Right now, that is not the norm.
In order to engender true student ownership, teachers must make changes to their teaching methods and elevate learning to a higher level.
In my experience, every one of my students should have a voice in a blended learning class. This is especially true for those who have had a more intense and demanding workload. We should be engaging students more—fully engaging their interests and interests in a continuing manner. They can’t be waiting tables, tending bar, driving a delivery truck, or out with their friends, turning off their classes and their learning altogether to go “have fun.”
I’ve heard that math was important, but I preferred writing. Can you imagine learning anything that involved writing? I often found myself limiting my students’ work or forcing them to make them write reports while telling them to bring them to me immediately after class. If I didn’t believe my students were passionate about their math and writing, how would I know they were committed to developing their skills and learning what they needed to? And if I would have forced them to write, how would they understand their own work? Their instructors and teachers might care about their subjects, but they would struggle in learning something with which they had never been exposed.
Similar to what my students told me about their love of science and business, these students are not doing homework because they find it interesting. Learning in this manner does not lead to strong motivation to stay and “have fun” with the coursework. All students should, at a minimum, understand the important concepts at the heart of their chosen subject. Students must feel ownership of their learning in order to be present with their teachers—and ultimately, in the class.
They must be given more options and more opportunities to interact with others and other learning activities. If a student is assigned to compile an exam and use their own grade to grade other students’ work—it does not capture the essence of the entire class. The curriculum for the course doesn’t reflect the student. A teacher may have a better perspective—and that perspective might be more helpful to the student.
Some important points to remember:
– “Question authority” is a great way to connect and engage with a class. Ask students to suggest questions. The right questions can yield important insights and skills to learn.
– Your students’ grade tells you what they are already working on. If your students’ minds and mindsets are overloaded by some task, there is a lot that can be done to raise the quality of what they are doing. This will drive the discussion. You may want to insert critical thinking exercises or related
