Interactive Resources: See “A World’s Fair Scrapbook” – an interactive resource that explores the use of primary sources as a means to reconstruct history. “The Hamburger Game” helps students’ practice attentive reading by choosing the main idea—or "meat"—from a passage of text.
PBS LearningMedia provides educators with a variety of options for blended lessons:
- Self-paced, online lessons for blended learning
- Lesson plans that incorporate face-to-face activities with links to PBS LearningMedia resources
- Independent resources that can be used to create customized blended lessons
Blended learning has a broad definition, but generally speaking, a blended learning approach can be described as a combination of face-to-face and technology-based learning. Blended lessons present the best of both worlds: they offer the opportunity for students to work independently, and they allow teachers to facilitate face-to-face interaction, discussion, and collaborative learning. This combination of in-person and technology-driven learning makes each method better than it would be on its own.
