WHAT IS BLENDED LEARNING?
Blended Learning is a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online delivery of content and instruction using actionable data with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace; and at least in part at a supervised brick and mortar location away from home; and, the modalities along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated teaching experience.
It is the mission of the Online Learning division to expand blended learning opportunities for all students at every traditional brick and mortar school to support all instructional programs with the ultimate goal of making students college and career ready.
Beginning in August, 2014 every district high school will be offering its senior students a blended learning environment in either Economics or American Government which will fulfill the statutory Online Graduation Requirement for all students who successfully complete the course. Schools will be expanding their blended learning courses for students throughout the 2015 school year. Students should check with their zoned school administration to determine which courses have been identified as blended learning.
Volusia Virtual School provides a Virtual-Blended model that integrates both a face-to-face and virtual teacher with online courses to support students from locations away from their brick-and-mortar school building. Some of the virtual-blended models are specific to student need, such as Hospital Homebound and Halifax Behavioral Services Day Treatment Program. For students who are struggling to meet graduation requirements in time for graduating with their class may benefit from the eLearning program. Information for each of these programs is available by hovering your mouse over the Blended Learning tab above.
