The Blended Learning Environment: A Viable Alternative for Special Needs Students

Jennifer Hall Rivera

Abstract


The traditional classroom provides a classical medium for educating students by allowing an open forum of communication between the pupil and teacher. The last twenty-five years have opened a new realm of possibilities in education through the use of technology and virtual supplemental resources, designed to engage learners in all academic levels. As general education and special needs teachers strive to provide the special education student with learning disabilities a constructive, enriching learning experience, the concept of a blended classroom has proven to be successful in achieving this goal. A blended learning environment provides special needs students with a two-fold benefit, a physical, face-to-face teacher of whom to ask questions and seek guidance, in addition to the assets of virtual resources.
