Immaculate Conception School and Loyola Marymount University School of Education’s Innovation in Digital Education and Leadership (iDEAL) Institute have partnered since 2016 to implement a cutting-edge Blended Learning model. Blended Learning curriculum 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 employs 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.
