Blended Learning: Defining Models and Examining Conditions to Support Implementation

This brief examines the research base on blended learning to identify a definition of this emerging concept, and to present a set of literature-based conditions for implementation that can be used to successfully integrate blended learning approaches into instructional improvement strategies. It was developed, written, and refined in consultation with partners from the School District of Philadelphia and the city’s charter sector as part of the Philadelphia Education Research Consortium, or PERC. Prior to dissemination, it was thoroughly reviewed by an anonymous, nationally-known education technology expert unaffiliated with PERC or the School District of Philadelphia. The contents of this brief reflect the work of the authors alone, and are independent of the views or opinions of School District of Philadelphia and charter school PERC members, as well as those of the William Penn Foundation.
