Blended Learning

blended learning "the future of education"

Mar 14, 2012

"THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION:" That's how CBS 60 Minutes--like so many others--billed the Khan Academy in its feature of Salman Khan last weekend. Such great PR has Dan Meyers on his feet, pointing to studies that say students don't actually like watching Khan videos. Dan also notices a discourse shift from emphasis on flipped classrooms to a model where the Academy is the classroom. His take: "all available evidence indicates that kids won't put up with it." Khan clearly feels otherwise, particularly as it is now offering a collection of ipad apps. A cogent argument in favor of blended learning is set forth by Stacey Childress of the Gates Foundation in the Harvard Business Review. It's among the most read pieces in the issue. Full disclosure: EdSurge has received support from the Gates Foundation for our beta website.
