E-learning benefits teachers, not just students

While e-learning is traditionally seen as an educational resource for students its can also benefit their teachers and directly impact on their professional development according to a report from US university Boston College.

It was found that English and maths teachers who took on e-learning courses in professional development have improved both their teaching methods and their knowledge of the subject itself.

"A series of online professional development courses that focus on specific content and target student learning needs can have positive effects on teacher knowledge and instructional practices," said Boston College Associate Professor of Education Laura O’Dwyer.

"The studies also show that teacher participation in online professional development can translate into improvements in targeted student outcomes."

The report came from four studies carried out on 330 teachers and 7,000 students over a three-year period where teachers completed three online courses, were assigned a trainer and each put in about 100 hours of training focused on the key areas of content knowledge, incorporating that knowledge into instruction and finally, classroom skills.

These teachers – and their students – were then compared to those who had not done any online courses.

What the researchers found was that teachers across the board of all grades and in both English and maths showed signs of improvement.

Although the results did not show the same uniform gain for all students it is thought that the timing of the data collection and the time frame within which the teachers were working to implement the knowledge gained would have impacted on this.

Overall the findings of the research argue the case for e-learning as an option for educators in remote settings and to help schools build skill sets in the absence of an adequate number of highly qualified teachers.

"This set of studies included educators working in a variety of settings and demonstrates that online professional development is an effective approach for improving teaching and learning in remote areas and high-need schools," said Professor Michael Russell, the study director.

"Given the positive effects found across these studies, it is reasonable to expect that online professional development is an effective strategy for supporting teaching in difficult-to-staff content areas, like mathematics and science."

One of the type of e-learning is blended learning. Let us discuss about it. 

Blended Learning is a mixture of learning methods that incorporate multiple teaching modals. Aost frequently eLearning and traditional face-to-face learning.

Blended learning is a natural development to the growing accessibility of eLearning, online resources and the continued need for a human component in the learning experience. A blended learning approach ensures that the learner is engaged and driving his or her individual learning experience. This approach also helps cater to the individual needs of the learner, most students have unique learning styles and a blended approach is more likely to cater to those needs than a traditional classroom teaching experience.

Blended Learning Models:

Due to its modular design, blended learning can come in numerous shapes and sizes and be personalized to fit the individual. These types of modals can include:

Online – Instruction occurs via an online platform, with periodic face-to-face meetings.
Rotation: Student rotates between self-paced online learning and face-to-face instruction. Schedules are fixed but flexible.
Flex: Most instruction is delivered online, with teachers providing as needed support in small-group settings.
Personalised blend: Teacher designs face-to-face and anywhere, anytime learning options that straddle the physical classroom and virtual spaces. Learning is the constant and time is the variable.
Online lab: Instructions takes place in a brick and mortar lab. Delivered by an online teacher and supervised onsite by paraprofessionals.
Self-blend: Students take online courses to supplement their tradition schools face to face course catalogue.
Face-to-face: Teacher offers primarily face-to-face instruction, supplemented with technology in the classroom or computer lab.
Why Is Blended Learning Important?

Blended learning is important because it breaks down the traditional walls of teaching, ones that don’t work for all students and now with access to present day technologies and resources we can tailor the learning experience for each student. Blended learning also offers flexible time frames that can be personalized to each person, offering them the ability to learn at their own pace.

True that. Virtual classroom platforms such as goolge classroom have enormous potential as a supplement for traditional classroom learning
