|Blended Learning is the combination of multiple
approaches to learning. Blended learning can be accomplished through the
use of 'blended' virtual and physical resources. A typical example of this
would be a combination of technology-based materials and face-to-face sessions
used together to deliver instruction.
In the strictest sense, blended learning is anytime any instructor combines
two methods of delivery of instruction. However, the deeper meaning lies
in engaging the students of the current generation. Thus a good example
would be to give a well-structured introductory lesson in the classroom
and then to provide follow-up materials online. Well structured guidance
is suggested early in the process, to be lessened as learners gain expertise
(Kirschner, Clark and Sweller, 2006).
