LMU iDEAL Institute Blended Learning Partnership
Loyola Marymount University: Beginning the 2019 school year, St. Gertrude the Great initiates a partnership with Loyola Marymount University in a partially grant-funded initiative to integrate a methodologically proven Blended Learning Model.
iDEAL Institute: Innovation in Digital Education and Leadership has long been a leader in innovative teaching and learning strategies, and the institute provides a place to explore how students learn in the 21st century. It seeks to foster new and forward thinking ideas in educational technology and its integration into the K-12 classroom for the benefit of students, teachers, and families
Blended Learning personalizes education, shifts the classroom paradigm and gives students the power to learn in the way they prefer, at their own pace and academic level.
- Teacher-led instruction dynamics will provide teachers more 1:1 time to support students individual needs.
- Small group instruction and collaborative practice empower students to develop critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills.
- Differentiated instruction through adaptive and assignable software generates immediate student-learning data to maximize student growth and success.
