As blended learning continues to expand across the K-12 sector, definitions are important to help people talk about the new phenomena. This white paper refines our previous work in helping to create a shared language for the emerging field so that innovators can build upon each other’s ideas, rather than talk past each other.
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.
Heather Clayton Staker is a Senior Research Fellow for the Education Practice at Innosight Institute.
She is the author of many publications, including “The rise of K-12 blended learning: Profiles of emerging models,” which Innosight Institute published in May of 2011. Keeping Pace with K-12 Online Learning listed it as one of the 11 most valuable reports for online learning policymakers and practitioners in 2011.
Staker is a frequent keynote speaker and panelist at education innovation conferences around the country and testifies regularly before state policymakers, including in Arizona, California, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania most recently. Scholastic’s blog named her one of 5 people to watch in education in 2012.
