Shepherd High School is bridging the gap between traditional classroom teaching and the growing world of online instruction. In the school’s blended solution design, students meet daily with their teachers in a face to face setting, but a large portion of their lessons, assignments and assessments take place through use of the web. Kristi Bush, Shepherd High School’s K-12 Media Specialist, has been gradually introducing online components into Shepherd’s curriculum for about 11 years. As a graduate of an online school, as well as an online teacher at Michigan Virtual High School, Bush believes it is critical for students to adapt to online learning in order to be competitive in the professional environment of the 21st century.
