Blended Learning: Behind the Scenes

It feels like we’re on the precipice of a more common, universal implementation for blended learning, but for a while still, blended learning is still dependent on teachers knowing what to teach and how to teach it. It still feels still like a grassroots movement from key teachers who are looking ahead to the future. We know that being able to function online is a 21st-century skill, but for some teachers, it’s still as futuristic as Logan’s Run. And while having to jump into using online strategies can be scary, it’s really all about our mission of preparing students for their future. It’s about having your ear to the ground about the skills these kids will need to know, and the determination to teach to those skills even if the world of education or your school site or your fear factor is not on board. While I am passionate about online integration in the traditional classroom, I do not know yet if blended learning is really for everyone. It isn’t just about the technology or the understanding of online interactions. It’s also simply a temperament thing.
