Blending Instruction with Technology is a book that offers educators guidelines and solutions for implementing blended learning in today’s classrooms. There has been a strong push by many communities, schools and educators to move to a 1:1 environment. However, once there…

• How does one teach or facilitate learning in such an environment?
• What are the researched best practices for implementing blended learning in classrooms?
• How do schools provide professional development to teachers to implement best practices in their classroom?
• Regarding the twenty year veteran who just recently mastered email, how do schools provide the proper guidance, training and support for him/her?

This books aims to answer these questions and many more. This book is designed to be a blueprint for preparing staff members to be successful in a 1:1 environment. This book also focuses on providing students with a blended learning lesson that incorporates both cognitive and 21st Century Skills.
I believe that Dr. Martin hits on key components of why it is necessary to better utilize technology within the schools. He makes it a point that we as educators and a learning community need to stay current with the advancement of technology in order to benefit our children and young adults’ education in today's world.
