In recent years, the development of learning sciences causes more people’s attention. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the impact of learning sciences to blended learning. With literature research, interviews and other forms of domestic survey, we study learning sciences from the perspective of four aspects: research fields, research hotspots, research institutions, and case study. The authors believe the core issue of learning sciences and blended learning research is how to promote learning. Both is closely linked, learning sciences can provide theoretical basis for teaching and learning methods, application of hybrid technology; blended learning research can also enrich learning sciences research and provide specific ways for a more effective learning. Learning sciences will have an important impact on blended learning, and promote blended learning progress in learning method, learning content and technical applications etc. to contribute to more effective educational reform and innovation.
