Accelerate Student Outcomes with Adaptive Blended Learning
Today’s students have experienced massive disruptions in learning. A study by McKinsey found that the 2020-2021 school year left students four months behind in reading. Increased use of technology for learning, however, has also risen, leading to opportunities to personalize student experiences and make up for lost instructional time in the process.
As the pandemic continues, it’s time to prepare for continuity of learning across multiple platforms, focusing on acceleration and enrichment through high-quality instructional experiences for students. This planning should address the current state of the educational landscape but also secure future success for students at all entry points in the learning process. Blended learning that combines teacher-led instruction with technology-driven independent learning can address immediate unfinished learning and set up students for future success, providing variety in location, platform, and content.
Blended-learning platforms save teachers time, make instruction time more efficient, simplify remote and hybrid-learning programs, and supplement a current curriculum for accelerated learning.
