Blended Learning

What is Blended Learning?  Blended learning is an intentional, educational approach that facilitates a dynamic classroom by providing opportunities for student empowerment and choice over the time, place, path, and/or pace of their learning. Students use a variety of tools including digital and print media as well as online and face-to-face interactions to achieve learning goals. Teachers provide an engaging and personalized learning experience through an integrated learning environment that allows them to monitor student progress and individualize formative feedback.

Why Blended Learning:
  By their nature, AISA schools have a transient population of students and teachers with a vast array of experiences and educational needs. Blended learning helps to address these issues by providing a more individualized approach to teaching and learning while preparing our students for the future.  At AISA, we believe that blended learning transforms student learning through personalization and increased autonomy by providing opportunities for: 

  • Active learning with a variety of choices where students have more responsibility toward their learning, setting goals and checking their progress
  • Personalized learning and differentiation 
  • Promoting best practices by improving teachers’ pedagogical approach and making them lead learners alongside students 
  • Encouraging the implementation of technology standards for both technology and other subject areas
  • Creating space for teachers to dedicate more small group and individual time for students 
  • Improving school emergency readiness and preparedness by training teachers, students and parents to use a Virtual Learning Platform that provides an easy transition and continuity in case of emergency closures
