Blended Learning

Blended Learning is a combination of traditional face-to-face classroom learning and online/remote learning. The exact combination of face-to-face with online/remote learning will look different for each teacher and their students, but a common aspect of any blended learning environment is the amount of student centered or student control of learning it allows. Students participate in determining how, when, and where they complete some of their learning.
