Blended learning is a relatively new concept has caught on rather quickly in classrooms all across our country. This form of teaching combines the traditional elements of classroom instruction with online materials including audio lectures and PowerPoint presentations. Because of our ever-increasing  integration of digital media use, it makes perfect sense to incorporate it into everyday learning. Some benefits of blended learning include:

Maximized Use of Time– Because lessons can be watched or heard before actually class time, teachers have more time during class to focus on questions and ensure students fully grasp the material.

Building Skills– Blended learning isn’t just about watching videos on a tablet, students still engage in presentation, speaking and listening skills.

Parental Involvement– As a parent, you enjoy the opportunity to watch the teacher’s lecture with your student at home. This way, you have a better understanding of what is going on in a particular class and can help your child if they are having difficulties understanding what is being lectured.
