The changing role of teacher in blended learning
The traditional classroom design was initiated in the industrial revolution and is no longer ideally suited to educate the students of today. Classrooms needs to change, to keep up with developments in technology and society. Blended learning is a new style of learning that combines online and face-to-face learning to create a more student-led learning experience. It was often mistaken that blended learning approach usurps the teacher and replace him/her with a digital learning tool. This is far from the truth, in a blended learning classroom, the technology is part and parcel of teaching students the facts and concepts, but the deep learning, the true understanding of the concepts comes from teachers. Blended learning has changed teacher’s role in digital learning design but without him/her, blended learning doesn’t work. This paper explores the changing role of a teacher in new age learning i.e. blended learning and essential pre-requisite of blended learning for teachers.
