Blended Learning: Lab Rotation Model

What is the lab rotation model?

A rotation-model implementation in which within a given course or subject (e.g., math), students rotate on a fixed schedule or at the teacher’s discretion among locations on the brick-and-mortar campus. At least one is a learning lab for predominantly online learning, and the other(s) are classroom(s) for other learning modalities.

How is this different from the station-rotation model?

The Lab-Rotation model differs from the Station-Rotation model because students rotate among locations on the campus instead of staying in one classroom for the blended course or subject.

Learning Time- Now you will rotate through a lab-rotation, below are the three labs you will visit

BREAK! Time to give the brain a break, and process. See you in 15 minutes!

Learn, Collaborate & Create

We have awesome teacher leaders who went to conferences this year. They will be sharing their knowledge with you, helping you with another blended learning example, creating awesoem strategies that you can take back and use tomorrow!

Thank you to our amazing leaders!
