Blended Learning - How One School Uses Digital Content to Personalize Learning for High School Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

You are invited to come and learn how one High School in Providence, RI is shaking up the traditional high school model.  Village Green Virtual Charter School opened in Providence in September of 2013. Starting with grades 9 and 10 in the first year, the school will grow to grades 9 through 12 in year three. The school is the first of its kind in Rhode Island; a high school which uses a “blended learning” model of on-line curriculum and in-classroom teaching. Students are in "workshop" working with teachers about 40% of the time and on-line or in advisory and reading groups the other 60%. Teachers at Village Green work with students when there is a skill or strategy that cannot be mastered in the on-line curriculum. The major goal of the “bricks and mortar virtual school” is that teachers are freed from designing and assessing lessons and can turn their attention to targeting the learning needs of each student. Our school’s design places students in classes when there is a skill or strategy they need to master.
