How are we preparing our students for a future that does not exist today?
What is Blended Learning?
Unlike the concurrent and hybrid learning models experienced during the beginning of the pandemic, blended learning is a formal education program that integrates learning experiences from the traditional classroom with lessons that use different capacities of computer technology to provide opportunities for individualized and engaging learning pathways while building additional skills for the future.
Why Blended Learning?
Technology is rapidly advancing, and we are at the moment in education where innovation is the key when delivering instruction. By integrating technology into instruction and using blended learning practices to create personalized learning pathways, students will become confident and successful as they are engaged in their academics.
How will the Blended Learning Designation be implemented?
There are currently eleven Year One: Blended Learning Innovator Campuses. Through provided support such as campus coaching, professional development, and readily available resources, these campuses will help lead the way in the Blended Learning Innovator Designation plan as we expand the success that blended learning can provide for equitable student outcomes across the district.
