So what is Blended Learning vs. Schoology?

Blended learning is a combination of face-to-face and online learning. The face-to-face time happens in class where students have direct access to the teacher. The online learning can be done at school or at home. Blended learning lessons contain three parts: in-person learning, online learning, and independent study time, which can all be combined differently. Obviously in-person learning needs to happen during school hours, but the online learning could be a video to watch for homework, a lesson prepared by the teacher, use of online sources at school, some type of digital curriculum, or assignments and discussions on [Schoology].

Think of it this way… Blended learning is the instructional delivery method and Schoology is the platform.
