Abstract: Literacy is defined as the ability to read and write; and these reading and writing must come by learning, and learning, by teaching. But, for a meaningful teaching and learning to be experience, combining traditional face-to-face classroom practices with computer mediated activities is not debatable in that, such blended approach will go a long way in reducing the challenges mitigating the zeal towards teaching and learning. Today, there are various available instructional materials that are computer-aided for teaching and learning purposes, which in the past were made of poisonous materials that pose danger to the life of both the teachers and the learners. Apart from all these known facts; two good heads (synergizing traditional face-to-face classroom practices with computer mediated activities) are better than one (sum of their individual effects), so says an adage. In this paper, we set the following as the objectives: 1) to review some learning technologies that are related to blended learning technology; 2) to describe the blended learning models; and 3) to discuss both the advantages and the disadvantages of blended learning. The blended learning principle was mathematically interpreted.
