This qualitative research has the purpose to analyze and synthesize a model of Blended Learning (BL) with IoT-based technology. Data sources are related literature, textbooks, research, articles, and websites. The author used analysis and synthesis tables with the content analysis method. IoT-based technology was considered to refer to all heterogeneous objects and devices through any networks, and BL is the educational approach to combine F2F instruction with ICT instruction. Many devices and “things” in IoT-based technology were added in class to create and improve a smart learning environment for the learning goals. This study divided BL into 4 characteristics; F2F, Self-paced, Tele-D, and Ubiquitous, which were further categorized into 3 typical cases of learning environments, Digital, Embedded, and Side-by-side cases. A framework of this model has 2 roles of user interfaces (teacher and student) which link 6 modules and a set of databases and 2 types of contexts (classroom and personal).
