  • Blending traditional classroom instruction with technology will improve student learning and motivation by 30%. The challenge for the adult ed instructor is to find the time and technical knowledge to make it happen.
  • Our Blended Learning course starts with the basics of educational technology concepts, and then gives the instructor the tools and skills to blend the best Ed technology with their direct instruction. The results are amazing. Teachers teach better, students learn faster and retain more, and everyone has more fun doing it.
