Blended Learning is utilized across our schools and is a model that combines online and face-to-face learning spaces and experiences. Blended learning environments vary by content, scale, technology, and learning space. Blended Learning combines instructional technology with actual in-person traditional learning. There are a plethora of blended learning models including but not limited to self-directed blended learning, flipped classrooms, project-based blended learning, flex blended learning, and individual rotation blended learning and supplemental blended learning. All models of blended learning support the focus on the 4 Cs of 21st Century Education.
