Students are now digital natives: tech-savvy individuals whose regular interaction with technology influences how they learn, think, and communicate. With this major change to the way students understand and interact with the world, it is essential that teachers integrate technology in their instruction to build students’ digital literacy, engagement, and career and college readiness.

This course is designed as a guide for teachers who are interested in integrating blended instruction in liberal arts (ELA, history, etc.) classrooms to increase student engagement and achievement, differentiate instruction, and connect students to meaningful, community-driven learning experiences. By the end of the course, you will be able to design and implement meaningful blended learning experiences with goal- and objective-aligned assessments and activities that address students’ unique characteristics as digital natives and foster core 21st century skills.
