Blend My Learning

Blend My Learning | Edtech for Schools | Scoop.it

BlendMyLearning represents a community of blended learning schools and practitioners, and offers a venue for these educators to innovate, transform and share. There is an urgent need to connect peers and develop information within this relatively small and nascent blended school community.

The BlendMyLearning began in 2011 by focusing on Envision Academy's new form of summer school that incorporated Khan Academy and Google Chromebooks. Since then, many other schools, institutions and organizations have joined the dialogue. With our re-launch in October 2012, we hope to meet the growing needs of schools and practitioners who are working in the blended-learning space, testing and trying new approaches to using adaptive software in schools, and committed to sharing their successes and challenges.
