Teachers tend to want applications that they can use with their iPads for the math blended learning classroom. I came across the app, ToDo Math. The math games are teaching students their basic math facts while learning in a "Candy Crush" type environment. The app is free for counting and multiplication but then charges for the in app purchase of time, geometry, fractions, and more.
A lot of teachers are always asking me for project based ideas and lessons to add into their blended learning units. I just ran across this website that allows teachers to "pay what they want" in order to implement the projects into their classroom. Take a look at Mathalicious

I just got done presenting at the FETC 2016 Conference in Orlando, Florida. I had 50+ amazing educators attend my session. We worked through the three phases of Blended Learning
As the participants worked through the three different phases of blended learning they all worked at their own Pace, Place, and Path while I used Data to guide guide their groups.
The end result was that all 50+ educators were able to take back to their classrooms, schools, districts, and higher education a implementation plan that would guide traditional teaching into a blended learning environment. Below is a sample PDF of the handout from the workshop. We are also offering out a Free One Hour Blended Learning Workshop for anyone that was not able to attend the workshop. Make sure to fill out the form and we will contact you to schedule a workshop.
