In order to create a blended learning classroom, students need to have access to online resources, such as lessons and modules, and work in an online environment where they can collaborate and create digital projects. There are a variety of educational technology websites that integrate with Google Classroom, such as Book Creator, Flipgrid, CK-12, OpenEd, Edulastic, etc. that are available for both teacher and students to use for free. Teachers will interact with these educational technology websites, create lesson plans, apply them into the curricula, and easily integrate them into Google Classroom.
