Educators and researchers alike love to obsess over what model of blended learning a school should implement. A favorite question I get asked is: “OK, now that you’ve told us about all the blended-learning models, be honest, what’s the best one?”
My answer? There is no “best model” of blended learning. The best model is the right model for your school—or classroom—given your circumstances, students, and objectives.
Other times people get stuck obsessing about innovating with the newest variant of a blended-learning model or trying to implement the “most disruptive” type. Again, this is the wrong starting point.
