What is Blended Learning?

 

Blended Learning (the "flipped classroom") is a formal education program in which a student, while attending a "brick-and-mortar" school structure, learns in part through online delivery of content and instruction with some element of control over individual learning style.

In physical education, students experience a balanced academic curriculum of lifelong fitness skills completing online lessons, assignments, and assessments outside class leaving more time for physical activity during class. The PE class becomes the "lab" where fitness concepts learned online can be put into practice.
 
In health education, blended learning enables teachers to bring Healthy Behaviors Outcomes (HBOs) to life through role-playing, project based learning (PBL), small group discussions, guest lecturers, and other engaging in-classroom activities.
