An Orillia high school is offering twin styles of learning. The innovative blended learning course at Twin Lakes Secondary School is a unique entry, featuring both online curriculum and face-to-face learning with a teacher in a computer lab. “This is a regular class that we have in a computer room,” explained Robyn LaChapelle, who teaches the Grade 10 civics and careers class. And while many teachers are already using various forms of online learning in their classes, this marks the first formal e-learning course offered at Twin Lakes. “We thought. ‘Why not have a trial run in Grade 10?’” LaChapelle said. “This provides more availability since every student learns differently.”
