The term Blended Learning refers to the practice of blending both face-to-face and online instruction. Within our PLi structure, we aim to blend the use of analog (paper, pencil) and digital tools. While there are a variety of blended learning models developed in this area, we have found that the two most suitable models for our system include the Rotation and Flex models. The video below provides a detailed look at these two models.
Due to student privacy policies, the above video is only accessible to users with district accounts.
