Blended and Flipped Learning

Blended Learning is a form of instruction that incorporates both traditional face-to-face instruction with web-based multimedia instruction. With Blended Learning the instructor is able to provide some content delivery to students when and where it meets the student's needs. The students are able to access this instruction through their own web connection or they can access the media via school computers/ipads/ipods/tablets/etc. at set times before/during/after the school day. The exciting part about Blended Learning is the time it frees for classroom teachers to engage their students in classroom discussion, labs, or even project based or problem based assignments. The teacher can then act as the "guide on the side" helping students with misunderstandings and the application of concepts.
