This study examines the ever-changing environment of blended learning, with a special emphasis on how teachers in public schools in the Philippines use Google Classroom in the shifting educational landscape. Based on a mix of academic views and practical research, the study seeks to improve our understanding of the difficulties and possibilities related to blended learning. The conceptual framework, derived from Graham et al.'s blended teaching matrix, classifies interactions into four quadrants, offering a complete structure for comprehending blended learning situations. The study aims to identify the blended teaching approaches used by instructors, evaluate the utilization of Google Classroom features and Google Apps for Education, and ascertain the frequency and dependence of Google Classroom as a key teaching tool. Data was gathered from 123 public-school teachers at the Schools Division Office of Isabela through a systematic survey. The results demonstrate a prevalent use of Google Classroom features, highlighting its significance in facilitating the transmission of lessons, communication between students, distribution of assignments, and improvement of learning activities. An examination of the features of Google Classroom, Google Apps for Education, and Google Docs file templates reveals a wide range of use patterns among instructors, ranging from seldom to regular utilization. Teachers demonstrate favorable attitudes towards the adaptability and compatibility of Google Classroom, emphasizing its seamless connection with portable devices. Challenges arise from the sporadic Wi-Fi connections, which have a negative influence on the quality of blended learning. The research suggests implementing customized professional development program for teachers and highlights the need to include adaptive technological frameworks in curriculum design. This study provides essential knowledge on the implementation of blended learning methods by public school teachers. It gives suggestions for policymaking, curriculum design, and teacher training in response to the ever-changing educational environment.
