While in Las Vegas for the SITE 2015 conference, I stopped in Bobby's Burger Palace, a diner by Bobby Flay. I was overwhelmed with the design of the restaurant.

Below, I will describe how the design of each area of the diner would work within the blended learning classroom.
As a blended learning coach, the below information on how to blend has been used with schools from around the country. By following these six steps the school, teachers, students, and parents were able to understand and implement the blended learning process. This is my recipe for blended learning.
