The WISE Report from the Clayton Christensen Institute explores perspectives on the blended learning process through the institute's comprehensive surveys of the three countries. This report touches on a number of school-based efforts to implement educational technology, focusing on whether, and how, a sample of brick-and-mortar schools in Brazil, Malaysia, and South Africa use online learning to deliver content in new, more flexible ways. Without directly comparing the samples, data from surveys and case studies showed a few common themes across all three countries: (1) The need to clearly distinguish between technology-rich versus blended-learning models; (2) Innovations in online and blended learning tend grow differently in different circumstances, depending on the success metrics to which they are held; and (3) Infrastructure and human capital pose some of the greatest challenges to implementing technology in general, and blended learning in particular. [This report was co-produced by WISE (World Innovation Summit of Education), an initiative of Qatar Foundation.]
