When we first implemented blended learning we adopted a custom day model or plus 5 model that provided students with 5 additional hours of Math and ELA each week. Our model has not changed in terms of hours per week but we have changed the role of the teacher. Initially the teacher served as more of a supervisor during the software usage. Now the teacher is responsible for working with small groups of students, monitoring software usage and assisting students as needed in learning concepts on their programs.
Start with only one or two programs, monitor to make sure they are successful, be sure there is enough technology to support the programs being used.
We have implemented the blended learning program at our campus to better fit the needs of our diverse school population. At HSI-SA we understand that all students learn differently and have different interests. Through blended learning we can incorporate different interest through the online programs, small group instruction and centers in our classrooms.
