Blended learning emerges as a leading trend in education technology

Blended learning emerges as a leading trend in education technology | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The annual New Media Consortium Horizon Report’s K-12 2015 Edition, that provides insight into digital learning trends, named blended learning as a key topic to watch in the next two years. The trends included in the report were selected by 56 experts from 22 countries.Two teaching and learning trends expected to accelerate the use of educational technology in classrooms in a year or two, the report said, were the use of blended learning and STEAM (an acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts and math) education.Sometimes called hybrid learning, blended learning enables educators to pursue a variety of instructional models. Ideally, the technology allows the teacher to make the most of face-to-face time with students, leaving some more routine learning tasks to the computer.
