The master plan developed by the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) identifies virtual classrooms and blended learning opportunities as critical resources for personalized instruction. “We’re focusing on cultivating collaboration and communications skills, critical thinking and creativity in our students,” CTO Melissa Dodd says. “To do that, we must provide opportunities for them to engage in rich tech environments, which is what they’ll encounter after they graduate and move into their professions.” Virtual classrooms not only provide well-stocked environments for the general student population, they also help SFUSD address specific needs. About 350 students use virtual classrooms to revisit classes they previously failed or for which they received poor grades.
