21st Century Learning
Blended or
Hybrid Learning
What is
Seven Myths
Online learning is just a high-tech version of the old correspondence course.

Online students spend all of their time in front of a computer.

Online and blended learning are essentially "teacher-less".

Students are able to cheat easily in online and blended courses.

Online learning is only good for highly motivated, highly able students (or conversely, only for dropouts and students in need of remediation).

Online and blended learning is much cheaper than face-to-face instruction.

Online and blended students are isolated from their peers and shortchanged on important socialization skills.

Online Learning Gaining Adoption
Enrollments up from 45,000 in 2000 to 1,000,000 in 2007
27% of high school students took online course in 2009
Ambient Insight projects 10.5M students taking online courses by 2014.

Models of
Blended Learning
4 Models of Blended Learning

Uses an online platform that delivers most of the curricula. Teachers provide on-site support on a flexible and adaptive, as-needed basis through in-person tutoring sessions and small group sessions

Self Blend
Students choose to take one or more courses online to supplement their traditional school's catalog

Enriched Virtual Environment
A whole-school experience in which, within each course (e.g., math), students divide their time between attending a brick-and-mortar and learning remotely using online delivery of content and instruction.
Rotation Model
Within a given course or subject (e.g. math), students
on a fixed schedule or at the teacher's discretion among classroom-based learning modalities. The rotation includes
at least one station for online learning
. Variations of this model include:

1. Station-Rotation
2. Lab-Rotation
3. Flipped-Classroom
4. Individual-Rotation

According to the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation's (formerly Innosight Institute)
”Classifying K-12 Blended Learning," May 2012, blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online delivery of content and instruction with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace and at least in part at a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home.

A National Education Association (NEA) Policy Brief on Online Learning states
"...blended learning (aka "hybrid" and "mixed-mode") is an environment in which a student learns in a "blended" model of face-to-face instruction with a licensed teacher and technology-based instruction that best meets the educational needs of the student. During the technology-based instruction, under the guidance of the teacher, the student has control over the time, place, path and/or the pace of the curriculum to form an integrated instructional approach. NEA supports the effective use of technology as a companion to classroom learning."

On demand content - self pacing

Increased student communication and participation

Engaging students with digital tools
Cutting edge educational tools may be rendered unusable because of district policies or state educational codes.

Often administrative rules try to make virtual learning fit into a traditional model, potentially creating unnecessary work and stifling scalability.

Another potential concern is the lack of uniformity for monitoring standards for inputs (i.e. teacher training and student support) and outputs (i.e. academic performance and pass rates).
