Thor Benson 1-to-1 program: 1 laptop per student Benefits: Drawbacks: why blended learning increases in:
1) student engagement

3) hands-on; minds-on learning
4) digital classroom resources •personalized to students
•individualized attention & support
•eliminates accessibility issues
•rich student-teacher-peer communication & interaction
•greater time on task
•increased cost-effectiveness
•increased productivity
•enhanced employee retention
•reduced training time
•reduced time and cost to update and distribute online learning resources blended learning defined:
-face-to-face (F2F) instruction
-online communication (both synchronous & asynchronous) "Blended learning, combining the best elements of online and face-to-face education, is likely to emerge as the predominant teaching model of the future" (Promising practices in online learning, 2008). "blended learning combines online delivery of educational content with the best features of classroom interaction and live instruction to personalize learning, allow thoughtful reflection, and differentiate instruction from student to student across a diverse group of learners" (Promising practices in online learning, 2008).
