What is Blended Learning?


Blended learning provides a flexible approach to teaching and learning, whereby, pupils learn some aspects of their course in school and some at home.




Blended Learning is exactly as it sounds – it’s a blend of learning that comprises face-to-face teaching in school with your class teacher(s) as well as online learning from home. Blended Learning uses a virtual learning environment (VLE) to provide information, instructions and work for learners. Schools use different VLE platforms including, Seesaw, Teams, Class Dojo and Google Classroom. Your school will clarify which VLE platform they will use with you. 

What is important to remember is that blended learning can still include paper based and practical work. The learning itself does not have to be solely online but using the VLE to provide detailed instruction for learners on how to complete tasks (e.g. worksheets, practical tasks etc).
