“I describe it as Facebook meets the classroom,” said Spangler, who teaches 26 students from around the country online. “A very key cog in the whole process is collaboration among the students online … I don’t think it replaces face-to-face classes, but I know this online stuff is here and is only getting bigger.” North College Hill, a district of mostly low-income students, is wading into a national educational trend called blended learning, which marries traditional classroom instruction with online learning and assignments. And it is spreading to all kinds of schools – public and private, higher education and K-12 grades – as educators face societal and governmental pressure to increase the use of technology while getting students ready for college or a career.
