Blended Learning

NGLC follows the Christensen Institute’s definition of blended learning: a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part online, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace; at least in part in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home; and the modalities along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience.

In both K-12 and higher education, NGLC looks to blended learning as an educational approach that opens up the following possibilities:

  • To better personalize learning for students
  • To enable teachers and instructors to focus their time on developing students’ higher order cognitive abilities and providing direct support to struggling students
  • To ultimately improve students’ learning, achievement, and progress

NGLC’s efforts in blended learning span across all four areas of our funding framework, from higher ed tech innovations to our most recent breakthrough school models in K-12.
