“2013 Trends In Online Learning Virtual, Blended And Flipped Classrooms”

Report Cover2013 Trends in Online Learning Virtual, Blended and Flipped Classrooms highlights the latest Speak Up data with a particular focus on the role that online learning strategies can play within school and district digital conversions. With the impending implementation of the Common Core State Standards and other new standards, the timing is right to tap into the insights of key education stakeholders to explore both the benefits of online learning as well as how to leverage these tools and resources effectively to transform the learning experience.

Since 2007, Project Tomorrow has partnered with Blackboard Inc. to create a series of annual reports that focus on the year to year trends in the use of online learning to change the classroom learning paradigm through an in-depth analysis of the latest Speak Up national findings. In this latest update report, we examine the trends using an inside-out perspective on the classroom and the use of a variety of online learning strategies with students. In particular, we focus this year on the insights and experiences of four key stakeholders: administrators who have implemented online courses within their schools and districts, online learning teachers in virtual, blended or flipped classrooms, parents with personal online learning experiences, and the students who continue to be enamored with the potential of online learning to transform their educational experience.

Key trends highlighted in the report include:

  • 43% - Percent of district administrators that are now offering a variety of online courses to meet diverse student needs
  • 60% - Percent of flipped learning teachers who believe online learning motivates students more
  • 89% - Percent of parents who want their child in a class where mobile devices are used
  • Administrators now value online tools for teacher learning opportunities in addition to student learning
  • Virtual, blended and flipped learning teachers are using MORE digital content with student than traditional teachers
  • Parents who have taken an online class for work expect their children to have access to similar learning opportunities
  • Students see online learning as a more personal, controlled learning process
