MIND Research Institute Dives into the Benefits of Going Blended

This week, visual-based blended learning math leader MIND Research Institute, released a new white paper- “Better Blends with Visual Game-Based Math.”

Blended learning is one of the major education models of promoting and creating a personalized learning experience. MIND’s Spatial-Temporal Math (ST Math®) is a great instructional tool to be used in blended learning environments because it provides students with a visual, interactive, and individually progressive approach to math education. This paper covers topics related to the benefits of blended learning for teachers and students, in addition to a description of the various ways ST Math can become a part of a district’s overall shift to personalized, digital learning.

Our very own Tom Vander Ark, also examines the learning plan concept of experience, connect, practice, and apply; a learning plan already executed by hundreds of thousands of students across the United States as a contributor for the paper.
