Blended Learning

What is Blended Learning

Blended Learning is an educational model designed to meet the individual needs of each student to prepare them for college and careers in this 21st century.  To be competitive in the 21st century, students must be proficient in the use of technology, be critical thinkers and problem-solvers, and be able to communicate with the world around them.  Blended Learning combines computer technology, on-line content, and digital communications with traditional direct instruction, offering multiple opportunities for students to learn and be prepared for college and the work force.  Blended Learning offers a truly differentiated instructional program where each and every student can receive a standards-aligned, appropriate education. We will use technology to:

  • help each student master the content and skills they need,
  • allow teachers to get the most out of their planning and instructional time, and
  • allow for individualized instruction, collaborative group instruction, and independent opportunities to learn and excel

Computers for All!

Each student at the Anderson School is assigned his or her own personal laptop computer and head phones.  Computers are used daily, and each student is responsible for the care of their technology equipment. With WiFi capabilities to access the internet, Smart Boards in each classroom, and daily opportunities to implement technology into the learning experience, students will be proficient as they transition into the real world.

“The factory model of education is the wrong model for the 21st century. Today, our schools must prepare all students for college and careers – and do far more to personalize instruction and employ the smart use of technology.”

– Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education
