Even though the COVID-19 pandemic made blended learning seem like a novel concept, this approach has been around for decades. The truth is, even before the pandemic there has been confusion over what truly constitutes effective blended learning, what does not, and how to practically implement it in the classroom. As educators were forced to scramble to get kids on tech devices during extended school closures, this confusion only grew.
Watch this edWebinar with Lexia Learning’s Alexis Treat and Meg Van Voorhis to learn how effective blended learning leverages the benefits of technology while keeping the teacher at the center of instruction. In addition, learn strategies for implementing your own blended learning curriculum at both the elementary and secondary levels.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
