Keywords:Blended Learning, Challenges, Implication of BL, Public Schools, Science Teachers’ Concern
The objective of this research study was to explore the challenges and limitations in implementing blended learning for secondary science teachers in public schools of Punjab. The research design for this investigation was a case study. The case study was chosen to showcase a group of scientific instructors that were sensitive to challenging classroom dynamics and to look into how they interacted as a group in relation to explanations for blended learning's drawbacks. Thematic and open coding were used in the data processing. Axial coding was used to open-code all of the written and audio data. The use of BL for science instruction was not without its challenges. We invited secondary science teachers to address the problems and difficulties with BL instruction. All participants identified different challenges and issues during the teaching through BL. For example, time-consuming, videos stuck some time, electricity shortage & internet connectivity, difficult to reply during the video play, financial resources are limited for maintains, and the examination system are anti-parallels. Based on the findings of this study, it is suggested that the government raise the financial budget allocated to schools for the upkeep of digital tools and the acquisition of a new device to help teachers and students and enhance learning.
