For the past few years, Navigate (NIDES) has been implementing a series of innovative new blended learning programs that are blurring the distinction between online and traditional instruction. The eCademy of New Technologies, Engineering and Robotics(ENTER and ENTER 2), the Fine Arts eCademy, Secondary iClass, and Independent Learning Centres all act as innovations that are disruptive and challenging to the accepted norms of learning and instructional delivery. In this interactive session, participants will discuss and share their insights and reflections on blended learning, and its future as educational mainstream in BC.
