Carpe Diem: A Blended Learning Case Study in Yuma, AZ

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865569876/Blended-learning-teachers-plus-computers-equal-success.html?pg=all

Deseret News published an article on January 5th, 2013, favorably reviewing Carpe Diem’s blended learning program.  Here are some of the program’s benefits to look out for while reading:

    • student centered
    • supports individualized pacing
    • increased peer interaction
    • greater advancement
    • flipping the traditional classroom model to allow teachers to focus on helping students with higher-order learning
    • more

My favorite quote in the article praises this instance of the program but warns deterministic, copy cat, administrators that this is not a plug-and-play program. “We’ve seen some models where they have bolstered class size, and the teachers say they can teach more students, and get paid more,” Horn said. “That could work in many cases, but it’s dangerous to universalize.”
