Definition of Blended Learning

Posted by The New Economics Education

Blended Learning Model is basically a combination of learning excellence are carried out face-to-face and virtually. According to Semler (2005): "Blended learning combines the best aspects of online learning, structured face-to-face activities, and real world practice. Online learning systems, classroom training, and on-the-job experience have major drawbacks by Themselves. The blended learning approach uses the strengths of each to counter the others' weaknesses. "

Blended learning is an ease of learning that combines a variety of ways of delivery, models of teaching and learning styles, introducing a variety of media options with the facilitator of dialogue between people who received the teaching. Blended learning as well as a combination of direct instruction (face-to-face) and online teaching, but more than that as an element of social interaction. Blended learning is the learning that is supported by an effective combination of means of delivery, teaching and learning styles are different and are found in open communication among all parts involved with the training ".


As for the advantages of the use of blended learning as a combination of direct instruction (face-to-face) and online teaching, but more than that as an element of social interaction that is:• The interaction between teacher and student• Teaching can be on line or in person• Blended Learning = combining instructional modalities (or delivery media),• Blended Learning = combining instructional methods

What is blended learning? blended learning is a learning model that tries to combine several kinds of learning models that already exist. Along with developments in technology, information, and communication, especially in the form of internet networking technologies, most learning models that combine a model of learning (face to face) face to face, off-line learning, and on-line learning.

Models on-line learning can be learning to use the web, blogs, e-learning, and so forth. While off-line learning can be learning to use a CD, DVD, and so forth. The general objective of this blended learning model is to find a combination of models for effective learning. In the end, this learning model aims to achieve effective learning, online learning and face to face to the ESP (English for Specific Purposes), provides some conclusions as follows:

(1) blended learning model with video-based blog is an effective approach for students in learning English; 
(2) blogging help 82% of students in public speakingnya improve skills, such as speech, articulation, facial expression, attitude and gesture; 
(3) students are also taught how to use computers and multimedia software applications blog through cooperative learning; 
(4) students can see and fix bugs and learn from other people's ability to see the video in your blog quickly, and 
(5) to implement a blended learning model for public speaking lessons, students get the advantage of self autonomy and collaborative learning, peer feedback from the video, instructor feedback and self reflection.
 
Implementation of blended learning model should be more widely supported by many studies, so the percentage of each of the learning model can be known. Blended learning provides the best opportunity to learn from the class of the transition to Elearning. Blended learning involves classroom (or face to face) and online learning. This method is very effective to increase the efficiency of classroom instruction and allow an increase in discussion or review the information outside the classroom.
