Overview

Few innovations in education today offer as much potential to transform how students are educated as the rise of so-called blended learning—the artful combination of computerized instruction (personalized for each student to make sure topics are mastered) with small-group teaching that is closer to tutoring than to traditional mass lectures. While so far put into practice in only a handful of schools around the country, some extraordinarily promising results have made this new style of pedagogy a source of great excitement for contemporary school reformers.

This highly readable book provides rich, up-to-date practical information for donors aiming to make a difference.
