Station Rotation and Blended Learning Teacher Tips

Blended learning is an education model where students learn through online media and tools along with traditional face-to-face teaching.

The multi-modal aspect of Blended Learning offers unique opportunities to engage learners where they are while giving teachers the time and space to help students right when they need it.

Some of the benefits of using blended learning include...

  • Using different learning activities to increase student engagement
  • Learning can be more personalized
  • As students gain experience using blended learning, they can become the "drivers" of their learning.
  • It creates opportunities to build differentiation into lessons.

There are different models of blended learning: station rotation, lab rotation, individual rotation, flipped classroom, flex, and A La Carte. Each has its positives and negatives.

My personal favorite is the station rotation model for in-class learning. There can be a balance of collaborative and independent work, hands-on learning, and teacher conferencing happening at the same time. Here are some of the resources I've found useful for learning about the station rotation model and planning lessons using this format.

Tip - Just like everything else, students need to be taught the expectations for working within the station rotation model. It will take practice. Taking time to teach them how to work in groups, what the noise level should be like, and how to self-regulate will pay off in the end.
