Pace, Path, and Place The Secret Ingredients to Blended Learning

Pace, Path, and Place need to be present in a classroom in order to be concerned a blended learning environment. Students need to be:

  • Working at their own pace to achieve the learning objective
  • Working in a place that best fits their learning needs
  • Working towards mastering the objectives through a learning path that fits their needs

Just because a classroom is implementing technology it does not mean that they are blending. The three P's must be present during each learning experience, all while using DATA to drive the learning targets and goals.
