Blended Learning Center
The semester of remote learning due to COVID-19 proved that devices and technology are essential for growth, innovation, and continuous learning in and outside of the physical classroom. As schools and districts look to the future, district leaders are working to enable safe and effective instruction by implementing blended learning plans.
We’ve spent countless hours having conversations with technology leaders throughout K-12 about what blended learning really means following COVID-19 and how technology supports these initiatives moving forward. From these conversations, we’ve put together comprehensive resources to help you maximize instruction throughout your blended learning initiative.
What is Blended Learning?
Blended learning can have different interpretations given the current remote learning environment. At its core, blended learning is based on the notion that everyone learns differently. Some students learn better with pen and paper, while others work better with technology. Similarly, some teachers teach better with technology, while others teach better with pen and paper. In today’s day and age, these learning styles are no longer independent of each other, as blended learning takes these learning and teachers styles and blends them to make instruction effective for everyone.
With the recent need for remote learning, blended learning now also refers to the blending of a distance learning setting with the classroom setting to make instruction both safe and effective for all students and teachers.
