Blending technology and classroom learning

"..or we can figure out a way to make zip codes irrelevant to a child's ability to learn, to realize their learning potential, and I believe in doing so realize their human potential. I am very excited about the future of learning because I think it rests in the promise of blended learning..learning that combines the traditional face to face classroom experience that all of us perhaps grew up with, with new innovative technologies that have the power in my mind to democratize learning"
