This report introduces a thorough taxonomy to the field of blended learning, based on feedback from the field and new innovations. To define blended learning and identify emerging models, the authors observed over 80 programs in the K-12 sector.

In addition, roughly 100 educators met during a pre-conference at the iNACOL Virtual School Symposium in November 2011 to critique the taxonomy. Browse this paper now to investigate innovative definitions and new learning models in the field of blended learning.
