BlendEd Learning

BlendEd is a programme of free professional development and resources for teachers to support blended learning pedagogy (Blended learning is a mix of traditional in-person learning with a teacher in a classroom and learning activities using digital technologies, often from home.)

The Covid-19 pandemic has reduced children’s access to education.

BlendEd helps teachers, school leaders and other educators design effective teaching and learning that makes the most of digital technologies – in the classroom and from home, live and self-paced, in-person and online.

BlendEd is designed by teachers for teachers. We know that teachers have huge demands on their time so all our resources and online courses are bitesize.

Supported by the IBM UK Charitable Trust, BlendEd is run by Education Development Trust’s Connected Learning Centre, a team of teachers and consultants with 20 years’ experience delivering high-quality digital CPD to teachers.
