Learn more about three ClassFlow features that provide perfect solutions for a blended learning approach.

Have you been wondering how to use ClassFlow in your blended learning environment? Whether your blended learning program reflects a 1:1, flipped, or BYOD model, we’re happy to share three ClassFlow features to add to your blended learning toolkit!

 

By definition, blended learning is a mix of technology and traditional face-to-face instruction. Blended learning combines classroom learning with online learning, in which students can, in part, control the time, pace, and place of their learning. 

 

Keeping this definition in mind, the Assessments, and Student Groups, and Assignments features inside ClassFlow provide perfect solutions for a blended learning approach.

 

AssessmentsClassFlow's Assessment Results Viewer

ClassFlow Assessments allow teachers to gauge understanding and track student progress. A teacher can determine whether or not students are grasping a specific skill through accessing the Results Viewer after delivering a ClassFlow Assessment. Information from the Results Viewer provides a snapshot of student learning and helps guide student grouping. ClassFlow Assessments are customizable or you can access Ready-made ClassFlow Assessments in the ClassFlow Marketplace.

 

Student Groups

In a rostered ClassFlow class, teachers can group students in a variety of ways. Using ClassFlow Assessments provides one way for teachers to identify which students to group. It’s helpful to keep in mind that student groups may be flexible and that students may be a part of more than one group. For example, teachers can update student groups on a day-to-day basis, or create groups for specific subject areas.

Education Consultant Pro Tip: Sticking to generic group names is helpful. Remember that you don’t have to reveal which students are in the gifted group or those that are in the remedial group.

 

Assignments

ClassFlow Assignments are customizable. Teachers can include PowerPoints, YouTube videos, and any other number of resources in a ClassFlow Assignment. Assignments can be delivered to an entire class or to specific Student Groups. Students can complete a ClassFlow Assignment in the classroom or online and have the opportunity to control the time, place, and pace in which they learn.
