Brainhoney by Anne Meadows

Sandy Wiseman reports from the West Virginia State Technology Conference:

Anne reviewed the purpose and benefits of Blended instruction.  Experts predict that by 2012 5% of instruction will be blended and by 2019, 50%  will be. You should use blended delivery to teach content that students need to review a second or third time, when you need to differentiate instruction, to cover material you don’t have time to present in class, and to provide additional practice.  A learning management system is necessary to organize blended delivery.   The rest of the session provided practice using a free system called Brainhoney.  It does have a paid version with more features.  Session participants then had hands on practice creating a Brainhoney account, exploring features, and adding content.
