What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning, as an instructional program or philosophy, can be defined as a combination of in-class, face to face instruction and out of class digital activities where students have some control over the time, place, pace, and path of their learning.

(Face-to-Face + Online + Learning Path)


Philosophy of Blended Learning

As part of the Vision 156 Innovation Plan, MCHS has developed a series of blended learning courses to enhance instructional delivery options for our students and teachers. As our campus structure has changed and expanded, so too has the number of blended course offerings at MCHS. On blended days in any course, students who meet the success criteria can choose to learn at a different location in the school, make appointments with school staff, or collaborate with other students.  MCHS believes that blended learning is a powerful instructional tool for teachers and can empower and motivate students for greater academic and interpersonal success. 

Some benefits of the blended learning approach are listed below.

  • Increased student motivation for learning

  • Improved Student-Centered Learning

  • Growth of Independent learning skills

  • Growth of Time Management and Prioritization Skills

  • Requires Flexible Scheduling based upon content/student needs

  • Growth of Enhanced communication skills

  • Provides opportunities for more Differentiated Learning

  • Provides teachers with additional time for teachers with struggling students
