Adam's blog entry on preparing for a flipped classroom:
Defining our Terms

Blended learning
is any formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path and/or pace.”
--Michael B. Horn and Heather Staker (
, 2015)

would still fit the above definition, but in its purest form, the online learning (usually a form of content delivery) occurs entirely at home while classroom time is used to check for understanding, remediate or accelerate as needed, and apply knowledge.

A “formal education program” is a learning plan organized and structured by an educator who intervenes as needed, with the student physically spending at least part of their time in a traditional facility (i.e. a “brick and mortar” building). This is why a fully online course that never meets in person would NOT be considered blended or flipped. A student that independently watches Khan Academy videos without an educator’s oversight or feedback, and are therefore not part of the educator’s “formal education program” for the student, would NOT be considered flipped or blended.

“Student control over time, place, path and/or pace” is also essential to the definition. Simply using digital tools in or out of the physical classroom is NOT enough to qualify as flipped or blended, since the student may use tools yet still not have control over one or more of these elements.
