As scary as it may seem, blended learning has come to stay. According to Mr. Rudi’s predictions, by the year 2015 blended learning – with all kinds of digital tools incorporated to a large degree) will have become mainstream in education. The question is: how ready are we to welcome the upcoming of such a trend?
And from there onwards, questions rise as in a chain reaction
Will the digital gap have been bridged by then, or at least narrowed?
What about educators’ reactions to this new reality which, for many, will have arrived uninvited, without prior notice?
How will beliefs adapt to the new paradigm?
Unfortunately, answers are not up to the degree of uncertainty at the moment. All we can do is get ready, get trained, be open-minded and develop new trends of thought, novel perspectives that will let us live up to the demands of a new educational scenario.
