The pandemic and the increasing use of technology in K-12 education it prompted has added renewed energy to the blended learning movement as most students are now learning in school buildings (and will likely continue doing so). About two-thirds of educators are expecting their use of the approach to increase during the 2021-22 school year, according to an exclusive survey of district leaders, principals, and teachers by the EdWeek Research Center. Nearly 30 percent said they were betting it would “increase a lot.”
Blended learning is an approach that leverages both digital tools and face-to-face instruction to offer a more personalized learning experience for each student. Students are typically given greater control over the time, place, and/or pace of learning and often participate in new instructional approaches, such as flipped classrooms. The approach is usually built on the premise that students will be attending classes in school buildings.
Join us for a discussion with a panel of educators who are integrating blended learning approaches into teaching and learning and evaluating the effectiveness of those efforts.
