Blended learning (English "Blended Learning") is a combination of traditional forms of classroom learning with elements of e-learning, which uses special information technologies such as computer graphics, audio and video, interactive elements, etc.
The blended learning learning process is a sequence of phases of traditional and e-learning that alternate over time. An example of such alternation.
Blended learning principles
Sequence. To get the effect, consistency in teaching is important: first, the student must feel the material himself, then receive theoretical knowledge from the teacher and only then apply it in practice. In many ways, this principle overlaps with the "flipped class" model .
Visibility. Thanks to modern e-learning tools, it is possible to create a knowledge base that the student will always have at hand. In contrast to the classical learning model, in blended learning, the student has access to teaching materials - video curses, books or simulators.
Practical use. Practical lessons are required for mastering the theory.
Continuity. Blended learning is based in part on the principles of microlearning. Due to the availability of the material, the student can always go to the training portal and get a "new portion" of the material.
Support. In the distance learning system, a student can always ask a teacher a question and get an answer promptly, without waiting for the next full-time lesson.
