Students learning more with mix of online, traditional classroom learning

By Katie Hetrick, Press & Guide

Blended learning is a broad term used to cover any mix of online and in class learning, said Troy Patterson, Dearborn’s coordinator of media and informational technology. “This becomes a different way of doing something,” Patterson said. Blended learning provides advantages in how students can get and process information, but also presents challenges because it requires more time for teachers to set up initially and hardware both at school and in a student’s home. “I understand it’s extra work for the teachers, but hopefully it will pay benefits in the end,” said Trustee Aimee Schoelles. She likes visiting teacher blogs to keep track of what homework her children need to do.
