How does the Flex Academy Work?

What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning is not the same as technology-rich instruction.  It goes beyond one-to-one computers and high-tech gadgets. Blended learning invovles leveraging the Internet to afford each student a more personalized learning experience, meaning increased student control over the time, place, path, and/or pace of his or her learning.  

The definition of blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns:

1. At least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace

2. At least in part in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away

3. Each student's learning path within a subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience
