Today's digital native students expect their learning environment to include technology because it is an intrinsic part of their lives. However, merely "cramming" computers/devices into classrooms is not the best use of technology to enhance learning. For technology to work with teachers and students, it must meet rigorous requirements like student-centricity, adaptability, integrated assessments. These are not simple web-based activities or webinars that many teachers may be deploying in class rooms today. On the contrary, these application technologies are being developed, tested and deployed by credible players with proven and demonstrable track record.
In fact, if there is one truism that has emerged in the relatively brief history of information computer technology use in education, it is this: It is not the technology but how you use it! Put another way: how you use technology is more important than if you use it at all.
The solution is Blended Learning where face to face classroom instruction is combined with computer-mediated learning.
Renowned Harvard Business School professor and author, Clayton Christensen, in his best selling business book, Disrupting Class, talk extensively about blending of technology as part of core instruction.
Blended learning is giving new approaches and strategies for addressing the challenges educators face and for taking advantage of the exciting new learning opportunities that are now available. More and more education establishments of all sizes are introducing blended learning into their instructional programs and they are discovering that this model is effective, affordable, and responds to students' and teachers' growing interest in technology- based learning experiences.
