Abstract

The aim of the current research is to identify: Correlational relationship between the quality of blended education and flexible thinking for male and female Arabic language teachers in the preparatory stage. In order to achieve the goal of the current research, it required the availability of two tools to measure the quality of blended learning and to think flexibly. The researcher built a scale of blended learning quality, as the scale consisted of (45) items, and the response to the scale items consisted of five alternatives: (always, often, sometimes, rarely), never), and the highest degree of the scale reached (225) degrees and the lowest degree reached (45) degrees, with a hypothetical average of (135) degrees. The correction is (1,2,3,4,5), as the lowest score obtained by the respondent is (24) and the highest score obtained by the respondent is (120). After verifying the psychometric properties of the two research tools and their paragraphs, they were applied to the basic research sample of (330) teachers of Arabic language in the preparatory stage, they were selected in a simple random way, to represent the original research community in a real way and after analyzing the data statistically using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), produced the following result: There is a correlative relationship between the quality of blended education and flexible thinking among male and female Arabic language teachers in the preparatory stage.
