    Hi Everyone,

    Please take a moment to share your initial thoughts and insights regarding the following 3 questions:

    1. What is your definition of blended learning?

    2. What do you think are the opportunities of a blended approach to learning?

    3. What are some of the challenges with blended learning?

    4. How do you think you could apply a blended approach in your school, workplace, and/or institution? Looking forward to reading your responses!!

    Take care, Norm

      Well, Anders Norberg calls it A Boy Named Sue. The slide show where he explains why he thinks that the label is not all that useful is linked near the bottom of this post.

      If you follow some of the links in the above post you’ll see that I’ve been thinking about blended/hybrid learning for a few years. When I initially started teaching ‘blendedly’ I wasn’t thinking of a label. I was just using the tools at hand that worked for my students.

      Continuing to ask and answer the question will be fruitful for years to come, I think.
