Abstract:   (93 Views)
With advancing technology, the modes of teaching have changed drastically today. The blended learning model is now used widely in the digitized classroom. This paper looks at the blended classroom through the lens of gender. Throughout history, men outshone women in class participation, by communicating more freely than women. Even today, this trend continues. The target audience for this research paper comprised technical students and executives of the IT industry. There is a need to ‘un-gender’ the blended classroom now. This is where the role of aggression in the language classroom comes in. Aggression is a tool where language learning is concerned. The paper suggests some means through which corporate trainers and college teachers can lead their students into an ‘un-gendered’ blended digitized language classroom. © 2016 The Authors.
