EXPLORING BLENDED LEARNING USING SAFARI Montage
Is “a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through the online delivery of content and instruction, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace, and at least in part at a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home”. Compared to high-access environments, which simply provide devices for students, blended learning includes an intentional shift to online instructional delivery for a portion of the day in order to boost learning and operational productivity.
Key Concept: Part brick-and-mortar instructional delivery system + part web-based instructional delivery system
