As educators we help students get smart and stay smart. We build learning activities that challenge students to think and act. Over the years, the best delivery of both the must know information and the requisite skills necessary to become good citizens and entrepreneurs occurred in the face-to-face (F2F) classroom. The fact that we now need to differentiate between F2F instruction and online instruction means that blended or hybrid instruction will be the most successful of all of the learning environments.

The same report to the Nellie Mae Education Foundation shows that “43 percent of students feel unprepared to use technology as they look ahead to higher education or their work life.” This situation can be fixed. The core delivery system that will change the negative perception of students’ sense of preparation lies in committing to using an authentic, project-based, student-centered curriculum that address education standards. Simple, but how do we get there?
