Blended Learning

There is a difference between technology integration and blended learning. Technology integration is when teachers use technology in a lesson or has students create to show mastery of curriculum standards. An example to technology integration is having students create or show mastery on an app/web tool such as ShowMe or EduGlogster. Blended learning combines face to face classroom learning with global online content, giving student more control over the time, place, path, pace of their learning. There are 4 different models.
