Enhancing Inclusion and Critical Thinking With Station Rotation Model: A Research Proposal


New pedagogies are quickly entering the educational landscape as educators scramble to provide students with the 21st century skills. Station Rotation Model, a type of Blended Learning is a student-centred method that creates more engaging, productive, and goal-oriented learning environments by leveraging technology. At the same time, teachers need more than one framework to meet the needs of diverse students and turn their classrooms into flexible learning environments by following a Universal Design for Learning. This is a research proposal with the purpose to explore the implementation of the Station Rotation Model in a Primary School Classroom in Greece. Such a model will be designed based on other models found in literature and on the ADDIE method for the designing of a blended learning approach. Moreover, the model will follow the Greek curriculum, whilst in order to provide an inclusive and differentiated instruction, the guidelines of Universal Design for Learning will be taken into consideration at the time of creation and implementation of the activities/ stations. With action research, the investigator and practitioner will document and reflect on the use of such a model on a differentiated instruction and its effect on students’ engagement, active participation and academic achievement. Last, the development of students’ critical thinking skills will be explored as it is a crucial part of the transferable skills. The expected results point to the fact that the implemented Station Rotation Model will create an inclusive environment and have positive effects on students’ engagement, academic achievement and critical thinking.
