Blended learning—the method of using multiple media and methods to teach—has been around for decades. Only recently, however, has it come to mean combining face-to-face learning with technology-based learning. Blended learning has evolved significantly in the last 20 years, and with increasing pressure on schools to ensure that all students achieve higher standards of learning with fewer resources, it has never been more important. Online and face-to-face interaction is a powerful combination that makes the most of every moment for both student and instructor. Blended learning can help ensure that every elementary school student receives the education—and specifically the foundational math understanding—to succeed both now and in the future in increasingly competitive domestic and international environments.
