What blended learning looks like
Updated: Feb 19, 2019
Expect to see less whole-class, teacher-led instruction and a greater mix of learning modalities in a blended classroom or school. Blended learning varies from one school to the next, but every blended program has a few things in common.
Most of the ideas in the free PDF, which you can download by clicking on the above link, are from a book I coauthored with Michael B. Horn entitled Blended: Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools (San Francisco: Wiley, 2015), published with the support and thought leadership of the Clayton Christensen Institute.
The PDF includes eight topics:
Is your program truly blended learning?
The four main blended-learning models--and their many combinations
Examples of Rotation models
Examples of Flex models
Examples of A La Carte models
Examples of Enriched Virtual models
What blended learning looks like for adult learners
Which model is best?
I hope the PDF will help you envision how blend learning looks on the ground and imagine the changes you could make in your own schools to improve teaching and learning.
