Blended-Learning in Evolving and Expanding

Last year, Innosight Institute published two white papers observing the rising and different models of blended learning. Last week this non-profit organization updated the observation on blended learning practices happening in different schools.

In the white papers, titled “The rise of K-12 blended learning” and “The rise of K-12 blended learning: Profiles of emerging models,” we suggested a preliminary definition of blended learning and categorization structure. This white paper introduces a refined definition and description of models based on feedback from over 80 organizations and 100 educators who commented on the initial research.

Figure 1 depicts a categorization scheme for the blended-learning landscape as it currently exists based upon an analysis of programs that either are preparing to launch or are already in existence. The models represent particular programs within a school, not a typology for whole-school design.

This white paper defines each of the models in Figure 1 and provides examples of schools and districts that have implemented them. It also identifies several education practices that share features of blended learning but differ in key ways.

With researching focused on innovations in education and health care, there are more valuable insights in their publications you can gain.
