Future lies in blended mode

Filed on October 7, 2017

With blended education, teachers can play the role of mentors and counsellors, working with students on all the emotional challenges that could arise from the educational challenges.

Blended education is the future and teachers have a responsibility to empower their students, said Michael B Horn, co-founder and distinguished fellow at Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation.

Horn outlined the future of education in the context of technological innovations that continually offer new channels of learning in his keynote speech at a session titled ‘Disrupting Class to Reinvent Education’ during the first day of the Qudwa 2017 Global Teachers’ Forum in Abu Dhabi.

Co-author of Blended: Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools, a bestseller on, Horn highlighted the benefits of blended education that allows teachers to use Internet in helping students enhance their knowledge and creativity.
