From the Back Cover:

Praise for Blended

"There is a lot of hope and misunderstanding around online learning and its relation to in-person learning. Blended clearly shows that it isn't an either-or proposition, but rather that the most likely future is one in which online experiences enrich the physical ones and vice versa. Even more, the book gives concrete examples of how educators, parents, and learners can move us all to a world where technology makes the classroom more human, not less."
—SALMAN KHAN, founder, Khan Academy; author, The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined

"Blended is the essential guide to move beyond the rhetoric about personalized learning and toward a practical strategy. It provides a powerful framework that challenges conventional wisdom about how schools should respond to the digital age."
—JEB BUSH, chairman, Foundation for Excellence in Education; former governor, Florida

"The authors' real genius is in using research and theory to take the guesswork out of moving our schools forward into the twenty-first century."
—JIM HUNT, foundation chair, The Hunt Institute; former governor, North Carolina

"Teachers will play a critical role in the transition to blended learning. This book gives a roadmap for including educators in the design of blended learning and for thinking through ways to empower great teachers."
—VICKI PHILLIPS, director of education, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

"Several years ago Michael Horn told us in Disrupting Class how online learning would rapidly affect modern teaching and learning. In Blended, Horn and Staker move from prediction to practice, detailing through solid research, observation, and case studies how blended learning is transforming traditional schools into 24-7 learning centers."
—BOB WISE, president, Alliance for Excellent Education; former governor, West Virginia
