In many blended and personalized environments, how teachers work with students and with each other changes. In some cases, teachers may work in teams. In others, they may take on differentiated or specialized jobs depending on student needs as well as teacher content and functional expertise.
In blended and personalized learning environments, educators may work in nontraditional ways to increase or decrease the student-to-educator ratio. This ratio expresses the relationship between the number of students in a given classroom to the number of full-time teachers.
Blended and personalized classrooms employ different modes of in-person learning, such as direct instruction, peer-to-peer learning, small and large group instruction, one-to-one tutoring, and individual practice and reflection.
Teachers in blended and personalized environments will often organize students into groups so that teachers can provide more targeted support or individualized instruction.
