Blended PD is the way of the future.


Today as I was putting the finishing touches on a blended professional development course for Atomic Learning I decided to take a few minutes off and cruise the Twitter feed coming into my iPad through the Flipboard app. As I was browsing the current edtech articles and posts I came across this interesting one by David Truss entitled The Future of Education will be Open and Distributed. He starts his post with this quote that got my attention.

Distributed Learning – Any learning that allows instructor, students, and content to be located in different locations so that instruction and learning occur independent of time and place; often used synonymously with the term “Distance learning”.

He then goes on to explaining about Blended Learning and his T.R.I.P. to the Future.

I have always felt that blended learning was the way to go, but it feels better to find out that others feel the way that I do.
