Blended Learning

The Diocese that I work for recently created a program called the Katharine Drexel Initiative. It's purpose has been to use technology as a method of increasing student engagement and learning. One of the key factors of this initiative was the use of blended learning. "Blended learning is an approach that blends individualized, online learning with face-to-face classroom instruction". The initiative started with implementation of blended learning in 6 schools. The idea is that individualized use of technology will allow not only the low achieving students to succeed, but also the high achieving. Therefore, changing how we teach in the classroom.
