untitled Children are growing up with technology infused into many aspects of their life, including the classroom. Teaching methods are evolving to incorporate 21st century skills, and blended learning is a great example of this. Blended learning has been defined by Innosight Institute as “a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online delivery of content and instruction with some element of student control over time, place, path or pace.” Although blended learning comes in many forms, the use of a learning management system (LMS) creates a dynamic ecosystem to complement existing teaching practices.
