Michael Horn's latest book, Blended: Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools, aims to arm educators with the practical information needed to implement successful blended learning programs. As a result, Blended stands out as an invaluable how-to — not just for educators — but anyone interested in creating positive scalable solutions for our schools.
We were thrilled when Horn, along with EdWeek, agreed to team up and deliver a webinar on using blended learning to improve schools. During the webinar, which took place earlier this February, Horn presented on the challenges facing educators today and the successes he has witnessed firsthand throughout the country. For Horn, blended learning is defined as:
> Formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online learning, where they have some element of control over the time, place, path, and/or pace
> Connecting online learning to offline learning

Horn also went on to share recent examples of blended learning classrooms, different implementations, why educators should care about online learning, and outline processes to help maximize the potential of blended learning. During the Q&A he tackled great audience questions, including how to garner buy-in from key stakeholders at all levels.
