The major highlight of this summer in The Netherlands was the UEFA Women’s Euro Football Tournament. The Dutch team won the championship, creating real hype around women’s football. It reminded me of the pleasant movie ‘Bend It Like Beckham’. The movie is about a daughter who rebels against her parents’ traditionalism and joins a football team (according to some reviews on the Internet Movie Database, even people who are anti-football will enjoy this film).
It’s a small step to this edition of the learning notes, which contains many tips to design Blended Learning, and so, the title ‘Blend It Like Beckham’ emerged. I hope these practical tips will inspire you and really help you to create effective blended learning. But be aware, blended learning is not a goal in itself. It’s a mean to an end. It’s the art of designing the ‘ultimate’ blend that best supports professionals getting their jobs done.
Explore the notes to find out how the virtual classroom, social learning, performance support or ‘awesome apps’ might help you in designing the ultimate blend.
