Academic Program

Program of Studies: Blended Learning

At CREC Computer Science and Engineering, students will cover the same curriculum as they would in their home districts. What makes us unique is our approach to teaching the curriculum. Because we provide Chromebooks for all students, we are able to create a more personalized, "blended" approach to learning.

With the aid of technology, teachers are better able to assign readings, videos, and online activities that are appropriate for each student at his or her level. The leveled lessons are available to the students through their online course folders in Schoology. By assigning differentiated assignments online, the teacher is free to work with students in small groups or individually, as opposed to a "one size fits all" whole class approach.

In addition to leveled texts, blended learning offers students the ability to personalize their learning through choices. In some cases, the choice may be between several activities to learn a certain concept; in others, it may be the student's choice in the order in which the activities are completed, or a choice of how a student chooses to demonstrate his or her learning (project, video, test, etc…).
