In 2016 eduToolkit will focus on Technology Enriched Instruction, since key trends accelerating technology adoption rely on real life examples of its current use. The NMC Horizon Project predict school will use Hybrid Learning Designs with both physical and virtual learning environments. There is an increasing interest to bring real life experiences into the classroom and this type of authentic learning has previously been limited to museums and science centres. Blended learning encourage students to follow their own learning pathways and interests.
