Blended learning has the power to reinvent education, but transitioning to a blended model is challenging. Blended learning requires a fundamentally new approach to learning as well as a new skillset for both teachers and school leaders. Loaded with research, examples, and resources, Blended Learning in Action demonstrates the advantages a blended model has over traditional instruction when technology is used to engage students both inside the classroom and online.

Readers will find:
- Breakdowns of the most effective classroom setups for blended learning
- Guidelines to build a blended learning toolbox of tech and resources
- Tips for leaders
- Ideas for personalizing and differentiating instruction using technology
- Strategies for managing devices in classrooms and schools
- Study questions to facilitate professional development and deeper learning

Written with system-wide transformation in mind, this is the resource teachers and leaders need to help them shift to a blended learning model and transform education for today's learning environment.
