Blended learning, a recipe for student success

With the advent of online learning and iPad usage, traditional learning models in the district needed to be reinvented. Blended learning is the result. It’s a national education program that combines online learning at home with face-to-face teacher-guided practice in a brick-and-mortar school. Built for today’s technologically driven society, blended learning is designed to deliver a highly personalized education for each student.
