While elementary school students are not generally seen as independent learners, blended learning can provide them with the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to learn independently.
As stated, the rotation model of blended learning is the one most seen in elementary school classrooms. Instead of rows of desks in front of a lecturing teacher, this type of classroom tends to be more spread out. Students move through stations, each focusing on different aspects of a broader lesson. They may perform different activities, watch educational videos or fill out worksheets at each station, advancing to the next at their own pace.
This model allows teachers to better see where students succeed and where they may be struggling. While some students advance quickly through the stations, others may struggle at a particular point. If many students struggle at one station, teachers can collect the class together for a lesson addressing the problem.
