Blending Learning

High School Science Courses

Year: 2018, with annual updates.

Purpose:

I worked with two science teachers who wanted to add interactive self-directed courses to increase student engagement and learning in their courses. I implemented research based learning strategies in both projects. The Anatomy & Physiology online course includes interactive modules for every unit throughout the year. Design Document Available upon request. The AP Biology course focuses on the Biotechnology unit.

Technology used:

  • Articulate Rise

  • Articulate Storyline

  • EdPuzzle

  • Flipgrid

Response:

Students and teachers raved about both online courses. They continue to use the courses, with yearly updates.

The video below highlights how I implemented the effective learning strategies of retrieval practice, immediate feedback, metacognition, and more.
