Blended Learning - An Innovative Approach to Personalized Learning
Why blended learning? Research shows that students in a blended learning environment outperform those in a traditional classroom and those in an online learning class. Blended learning also increases student engagement, time-on-task, individualized instruction, feedback/reinforcement, and student ownership.
How does blended learning work? Blended learning is how a school operates, an integral part of a school’s culture. Blended learning is an educational model in which students learn through the integration of adaptive, online learning with small group, face-to-face teacher instruction, and small group collaborative learning. High quality blended learning is personalized, mastery-based, and has high expectations and student ownership.
So, what does that mean for your child? It means your child is engaged in the process of learning, knows what and why concepts are being learned, and progresses only when skills are mastered. Blended learning provides more efficient and effective learning time and small groups help build stronger student/teacher relationships.
This model will allow your child to perform at the highest possible level at his or her own pace: advanced, typical, or remedial. This model also helps prepare your child for the 21st Century by providing opportunities to learn digital literacy, collaboration, and creativity in addition to mastery of the core academic skills. One of the most important products of students engaged in blended learning is their development of a love of learning and the strategies to become a lifelong learner. Students love to learn in a blended learning model!
