(from the Christensen Institute) More and more schools are embracing a blended-learning approach that combines the flexibility and customization of online learning with the structural and social advantages of a brick-and-mortar school. Yet persistent myths about the practice can make it harder for educators to advocate for it. The Christensen Institute identifies five such myths, including the thinking that "blended learning looks like kids in headphones in front of screens all day." In fact, blended learning complements many teaching and learning approaches, including collaborative project-based and experiential learning. Blended learning also offers flexibility in how students choose to learn. Some students may opt for more collaborative and hands-on learning over working individually with a computer.
