Casey, D. C. (2013, October 29). Rural Schools Face Barriers, Promise by Moving to Blended Learning.

Rural Idaho teachers who have used blended learning for at least one semester say it benefits their instruction and students’ learning, according to a new study.Still, the majority of teachers surveyed hadn’t used blended learning in their classrooms yet, and they said a lack of time, technology, training and administrative support were the biggest issues they faced. Blended learning is when students learn part of their lessons online and have some control over when and where that happens. Blended learning requires that some learning happens digitally, and is intended to be a complement to, rather than replacement of, traditional instruction.
