Ways to Learn More and Get Started
Blended Learning: Where Online and Face-to-Face Instruction Intersect
for 21st Century Teaching and Learning
Blended learning, the teaching practice that combines teaching methods from both face-to-face and online
learning, is an established, rapidly growing model of instruction. It has proven highly effective in helping schools
and districts address the challenges of student achievement, limited resources, and the expectations of 21st
century learners. This paper reviews the working definitions of blended learning, explores relevant efficacy data,
recaps innovative and practical implementation models and provides profiles of several schools and districts that
are experiencing success with their blended learning programs.
The Rise of K-12 Blended Learning
In 2009, more than 3 million K-12 students took an online course. This paper by the Innosight Institute shares
information collected from a market survey of the emerging blended-learning environment. Research shows that
blended learning is gravitating toward six models. This paper explains these models and gives use case examples
for how districts are incorporating blended learning into the curriculum.
