What is a Hybrid Classroom?

A Hybrid Classroom is one where the students meet face-to-face with the teacher, has extensive internet content, uses only relevant technology and strives to provide real world context so students leave skilled, knowledgeable and well prepared.

This Community is for everyone who wants to discuss best practices in a hybrid classroom, ask questions and collaborate in innovative education projects.
