Blended Learning is an integrated, 21st-century approach that aims to personalize learning by exploiting recent technological trends (i.e. accessibility of the Internet, Web 2.0, mobile devices, etc.). It is often associated with the “flipped classroom,” project-based learning, constructivism, and technology-rich creative activities. Utilizing online and digital resources (screencasts, podcasts, instructional videos, eBooks, learning modules, etc.) often creates space during class meetings for 1-to-1 or small group coaching by the teacher and for student collaboration. For these reasons, teachers using a blended learning approach find students more engaged and motivated. Students will understand the tenets of blended learning and how to apply this educational model to their current music education teaching responsibilities. They will understand how to select and employ appropriate educational resources through technology to advance student learning, and gain knowledge in how to effectively plan, design and implement quality instructional strategies in the music education classroom through the blended learning model.
