Abstract

This chapter has argued that the blended learning model can be a panacea for addressing the serious challenges facing education authorities universally. Whilst it offers many pedagogical insights and tremendous pedagogical value based on several studies, it fails to provide equal opportunity and economic freedoms, thus leaving the majority of vulnerable children in the world marginalized. The chapter has made a case for a blended schooling system instead of a traditional model which is extremely expensive. The trends of the practices of blended learning were analyzed, and it was found that most of the studies defined blended learning from the point of view of its online and traditional elements without considering pedagogy. These studies suggested using new methods of learning and teaching in online technologies to implement blended learning to K-12 students. The authors also proposed a conceptual inclusive blended learning model to reduce digital inequality and which is one of the ways most children in the world can gain access to the mainstream economy and social life.
