We know that many of you are either using blended learning techniques, or would like to use them in your classroom. In our daily trawl through the web, we came across some excellent resources for teachers from the Australian NSW Public Schools website.
They have produced a nice page that answers some common blended learning questions, gives exemplars, and provides four excellent booklets on blended learning techniques. We thought that the booklets were excellent at describing and helping with some of the key challenges to blended learning. Definitely worth a read through if you are using blended learning techniques, or if it is something that your school is looking to do in the future.
