Dustin Fowler's curator insight, April 7, 3:13 PM

I like this article because it points to the trends in blended instruction from the standpoint that it isn't really going anywhere.  Being an advocate for blended instruction in my physical classroom, as well as a virtual teacher, I have tried to explain to some of my more traditional-minded colleagues that we all need to be paying attention to the changes in education.  Blended Instruction takes many shapes.  We can all agree that these models are changing education, and they are not going anywhere!
