What are the Three Phases of Blended Learning?
The Three Phases of Blended Learning were designed and created by Marcia Kish. As a blended learning coach, Marcia realized that a gradual release program works best when transforming the traditional classroom into the right blended learning environment. The Three Phases of Blended Learning explores ten key elements that we look for in the classroom setting. The ten components include the use of data and assessment, allowing students to work at their own pace, place, and path, the use of digital content, student engagement, and the role of the teacher. The teacher can move through the continuum at her own pace and flow between Phase One, Phase Two, and Phase Three depending on the nature of the lesson provided to the students.
