Many educators believe traditional learning environments need to be enhanced to be more engaging to students. New educational methods need to be dynamic and responsive to connect with today’s learners. One of the most popular new methods is blended learning, which combines dynamic online content with engaging face-to-face learning activities. This review of literature aims to explore the impacts this learning model has made in science classrooms. By changing the way that information is delivered to students, teachers are able to create more in-class learning opportunities for students. Students are able to practice more in the presence of their teacher, and classes can incorporate more hands-on learning. Although the initial set up of a blended classroom may take more time, there are positive outcomes for students.
