The Importance of Building Relationships with Students Involved with Hybrid and On-line Instruction
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
This paper is the result of observations in Grand Rapids, Michigan Public Schools where a new model of blended instruction has been adopted. Informal interviews were conducted with Grand Valley State teacher-assistants and classroom teachers, with subsequent discussions with an area technology coordinator. Preliminary findings are discussed in this paper about the lack of effective communication that leads to confusion in the classroom and disruption of a positive learning environment. Teachers, technology coordinators, administrators and parents should thoroughly investigate the impact on the students of this type of blended instruction .
