Blended learning environments can create more and better opportunities for teacher collaboration, enable differentiated staffing and boost meaningful professional development opportunities.When blended learning tears down the walls of a traditional
classroom, teachers have more opportunities to collaborate with one another and to put their individual talents to work in differentiated staffing models.
Teaching in online and blended environments necessitates the development of new skillsets. Time saved from the thoughtful implementation of technology can be reinvested working with students, collaborating with other teachers and developing the new roles.
