This fall at Milwaukee Collegiate Academy students will use state-of-the-art technology to assist in their learning. We are implementing a new and exciting blended learning environment for the 2013-14 school year.
Blended learning allows teachers to do what they do best – work directly and closely with individual students and small groups – by harnessing the adaptive power and precision of technology. Our blended learning approach uses technology to:
- Help each student master the content and skills they need.
- Integrates technology and teaching that allows students to fully master content and skills, and at the pace that’s right for them.
- Allows teachers to get the most out of their planning and instructional time.
Blended learning allows for richer and deeper interactions between teachers and students (and between students themselves) than in traditional classrooms. Think about it this way: an average classroom sets a “speed limit” for the class – bounded by grade-level standards and assessments – making it hard for some kids to catch up and holding others from moving ahead when they’re ready. But blended learning revs up students’ learning velocity, allowing them to go further and faster. Who knows how far they’ll go?
