With the increasing use of innovative ways to blend learning (face-to-face and digital presentations), there comes the challenge for teachers to define ways to address individual student learning needs while maintaining high levels of creativity within their lessons. One cannot be sacrificed for the other; there must be a common ground.
Two good resources to assist teachers in finding this common ground are Open Curriculum and Activate Instruction. Both are web-based and provide flexible platforms for collaboration, sharing ideas, and individualizing student learning plans and activities. They are a win-win option for teachers struggling on how to remain relevant and exciting while maintaining fidelity to existing curricula and multiple student learning styles.
