Blended Learning is Now At ICS! Immaculate Conception School and Loyola Marymount University School of Education’s Innovation in Digital Education and Leadership (iDEAL) Institute are pleased to announce a partnership to implement a cutting-edge Blended Learning model at the inner city Los Angeles Catholic school. LMU is collaborating with the school to implement an innovative Blended Learning curriculum that integrates online learning and traditional face-to-face instruction in order to provide students with access to new technologies, personalized instruction, small group teacher led instruction and 21st-century learning experiences that will prepare them for their educational journey through high school, college and into their careers.
LMU School of Education’s iDEAL Institute is implementing a Blended Learning program employing proven, research-based practices to improve instruction and student outcomes. Both adaptive and individualized, this Blended Learning model uses small group instruction and differentiated learning strategies, supported by the latest technology and software. The Blended Learning model draws on LMU’s successful Center for Math and Science Teaching (CMAST) Teacher Leader professional development program that aims to increase student engagement and achievement through a focus on leadership and collaboration.
Many of you helped make this possible through generous contributions — Thank you! Following our completion of this first year of Blended Learning we will send a follow up sharing our successes, challenges and outcomes. We are very excited for this new opportunity and partnership!
