I hope to bring the course I'm currently taking part (and designing content in), into a more Blended Learning type course.

Extra content

Your situation (context) _______________________ I work in a the Training Section of a Higher College in Abu Dhabi, teaching the military. The course is very structured and theme based on set vocabulary that they need to know in order to get scores in an exam which will help them get promotion and make other important career moves. It is very text and paper based, I have designed various quizzes for them in Edmodo, as part of their weekly assigments, so they can practice this very specific vocabulary independently. _____________________________________________________ The change you would like to see (challenge) I would like to bring this together into more of a unit, as such design a Blended Learning curriculum, that is a solid part of the whole. Perhaps set up a blog, using the set themes, and make reading and writing more of an active part of it, both online and face-to-face. Using Edmodo or another social networking site could also enhance this possibilty. _________________________________________________________ What do you hope to achieve? What would be different if you succeed? My hope is that the vocabulary which the core of the course, will be contextualised and brought to life for the students; that they can apply it to their everyday lives and see its relevance. I would like them to see through their own work, online and on paper their improvement in the skills, and most importantly see an improvement in their exam scores. _______________________________________________________ How you might go about bringing that change? In second semester, I would like to continue with Edmodo quizzes, but extend it's use to assignments and encourage use of the library to share links and photos. I also would like to set up a blog, depending on how feasible this is, given the time available, but I hope to design a curriculum that takes in all elements necessary to include this. _______________________________________________________________

I don't know how to edit this any further, when I wrote it in the cloud section, it was spaced and had gaps. I apologise for the final 'look'! if anyone can advise how to change this and make it look 'normal' I'd be very grateful if you could help me.
