    WHY BLENDED LEARNING

     

    • Blended learning allows teachers to differentiate and individualize instruction for individuals or groups of students.
    • Blended learning provides flexibility for students-- students can work ahead, revisit difficult concepts, or master material.
    • Teachers can “meet students where they’re at” in terms of individual progress.
    • Allows teachers more one-on-one time with groups or individual students who may be struggling.
    • Blended learning is a natural progression toward a college setting→ students learn autonomy, flexibility in time & task management by doing it in a supported setting with teacher guidance.
    • Work life / Post-education experience (e.g. working from home, managing time).
  • FAQ

     What will blended days look like?

    A blended class offers flexibility in how class time is structured.  A particular class day can range from no face-to-face time, full face-to-face time, to face-to-face time with selected groups of students.

     

    What type of student will thrive in a blended class?

    Students who do best in blended classes are those that have or are open to improving their organization, time-management, and self-advocacy skills.  While blended classes still contain a good bit of structure, students must be open to self-directing their own learning.
