## Reflection: Modeling Day 2: Paper Tower Blueprints - Section 3: Creating Orthographic Projections of Paper Tower Design

Blended learning gives students an opportunities to use technology to help attain useful information. This enables students to go at their own pace and rewind--similar to flipping a classroom - if they don't understand.

The website used in this case walks students through the process of creating orthographic projections. Making this resource available to them means that they will have a resource available at home, if they need to refresh their memory of how orthographic projections work. The visual and interactive aspect of using this website made it easier for my students to grasp a complex concept.
