So, WHY Blended Learning?

At last year’s iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium, educators and thought leaders shared what excited them most about blended learning. Participants shared that blended learning acts as a change agent that can transform the teaching profession as well as the learning experience. When blended learning programs are effectively implemented with quality content and curriculum, students gain access to more personalized and engaging learning.
