Schools across the country have moved to the next level of blended learning, turning to student-directed personalized work that matches pupils’ needs and abilities, rather than simply combining online elements with face-to-face instruction. District Administration reports there are four learning models embedded in “blended 2.0” nationwide: rotation, where students move through classroom stations based on data-driven teacher insights; flex, which combines in-school and homework activities; a la carte online modules that add to classroom instruction; and an enriched virtual model that gives students face-time in class and requires online work at home. Districts are focusing on professional development to help teachers make the switch to such personalized learning, which schools have found decreases behavior problems and improves attendance among students.
