How Blended Learning Prepares Students for Success


Gone are the days of overhead projectors and composition notebooks in the classroom. The technology revolution has made its way into education. Some critics frown upon the rapid influx of tech into learning, but the fact is today’s job market requires essential knowledge of tech. If primary school is to prepare students for the workforce, integrating technology is critical to their success in adulthood.

On this episode of MarketScale’s EdTech podcast, we discussed the idea of “blended learning,” a term used to describe the smooth integration of technology in the modern classroom. Today, two customer success experts from Istation, a leading provider of game-like education technology, joined the podcast; Julie Kalinowski and Julie Robinson broke down how, when blended learning is implemented correctly, it can show incredible results in student success.

Julie Kalinowski saidToday’s students are technology natives, born into society fully reliant on the operation of a technological and data-driven world. This crucial change in our culture means a profound change in how students learn. Kalinowski attested that blended learning increases student interest, and empowers them to take ownership of their learning.

By collecting data on how students engage with Istation programs, teachers have the tools to customize learning for each student. This allows the students to learn at their own pace and in their way.

Though a child’s mind is malleable, teachers often struggle to change course on how they teach. Blended learning turns tech into a tool, not a burden for teachers. They’re encouraged to customize the classroom’s use of ed-tech and implement new programs one small step at a time.

Robinson said to teachers slow to adapt: “Don’t be afraid to try and don’t be afraid to fail…ask the kids for feedback.”

For decades the field of education has struggled to standardize learning and give every student equal opportunity. But Robinson wisely quotes a former administrator when saying, “Technology is going to be the one thing that’s going to level the playing field for all students.”
