This paper showcases the learning benefits and challenges of using technology in teaching and learning. The use of technology allows the incorporation of blended learning as well as active learning, which enhance student’s learning outcomes and experiences. While technology provides an interactive and engaging learning environment, it also adds a more demanding learning environment in and outside the class room. This paper discusses the advantages and challenges of blended learning and the use of technology. Our findings show that students’ learning experiences and learning outcomes improve through blended learning in the class room, but also provide challenges due to the increased burden of independent learning outside the class room. We suggest that teaching students how to cultivate a growth mindset could prepare them to adapt to these changes.
