Instructional Model

What does blended learning look like?

Flex Model

BlendED supports students from throughout the community, including a large number of traditional, non-traditional and at-risk students with a Flex Model that provides curriculum in a combination of online and in-person sessions.


Online Instruction

Students build a class schedule from a list of core and elective online courses. This remote curriculum is primarily self-guided and facilitated by licensed teachers. Courses are broken up into modules that contain the learning content, activities, and assessment students have to complete. Each module contains text readings, multi-media, digital activities, and training that provide the information needed to successfully complete the assignments that meet standards and prepare them for each progressive level.

In-person Instruction

On-site Studio, Computer Lab, Workstation, and Small Group Sessions

During BlendED Learning Studio, students meet with their teachers to discuss their online classes and progress, as well as to collaborate with each other on their real world, student-driven projects. The BlendED teachers support students’ project-based learning by offering lessons which relate project objectives to their online courses, as well as emphasizing concepts in mathematics, reading, writing, and higher-level thinking.


Certified teachers, student learning coaches, counselors, and administrators monitor on-site studios, computer labs, and workstations, providing face-to-face support for students working through customized inquiry.


BlendED studios, labs, and workstations incorporate a differentiated model with:

  • whole-group guidance to introduce material and model strategies
  • small-group work for collaborative learning with peers
  • individualized learning for independent work and teacher-directed instruction

Facilitated Large Group Activity

Whole group on-site studio training introduces concepts, material, and modeling strategies. Resembling a smaller version of a differentiated classroom, lessons address common core curriculum standards and introduce experience-based projects to provide framework for student learning in studio labs and workstations.

Studio Lab and Project Workstations

Students attend weekly structured sessions in open computer labs and workstations that are organized and facilitated by certified teachers and student support coaches who track individual and small-group goals. Students access the digital agenda that outlines the daily expectations and goals. BlendED’s suite of online programs will be developed by the Multiple Discipline team. Students have access to digital learning to work on project-based assignments.

Students will also have the opportunity to address problems they are having with their online curriculum by back-filling holes in the student’s prior knowledge. Prescriptive learning in Edgenuity provides students the opportunity to analyze and remedy gaps in fundamental building blocks of their knowledge. Students working in small groups cycle into the computer lab and workstations from the on-site classroom.

Video Conferences

Teachers and students also have the opportunity to work together in virtual collaboration.

How is this type of teaching different from traditional classrooms?

Classroom management is much different in this type of environment. Time and curriculum management are turned over to the students who choose from selected core topics and teachers to work with at any given time during on-site workdays. Overt management strategies emphasizing lecture, worksheets, and seat-work are replaced with individualized coaching. Students are taught skills to manage their personalized schedule and curriculum needs.

 

In this setting, students spend the majority of time working individually with teachers, on their own, and with small group. Students are taught to find their own resources, trouble shoot problems, and create dynamic solutions to complex problems.  


It is important for teachers to structure the on-site activities to facilitate student success with meaningful learning. This often takes place at the individual level and requires clearly understood project stages and benchmarks. In this environment, teachers will work as a team to develop state-of-the-art techniques for students to generate meaningful scientific queries, manage time, prioritize tasks, find and create supporting data, link data to conclusions, and develop creative solutions and logical arguments.
