Blended learning , like BYOD and Flipped learning, is an educational concept that has gained much prominence with the massive uptake of web 2.0 technologies. According to Weblearning " A blended learning approach combines face to face classroom methods with computer-mediated activities to form an integrated instructional approach. In the past, digital materials have served in a supplementary role, helping to support face to face instruction.For example, a blended approach to a traditional, face to face course might mean that the class meets once per week instead of the usual three-session format. Learning activities that otherwise would have taken place during classroom time can be moved online." Check out this resource to learn more about blended learning.
