Blended Learning with STEM School Chattanooga

Blended learning is the instructional practice by which we integrate technology into our curriculum, instruction and assessment. In a traditional school setting, the teacher usually has access to all of the knowledge and information, and the students are reliant on the teacher to dispense the information. In a virtual school setting, all information is disseminated by an online platform and there is no teacher involved in the teaching process. In blended learning, we use both practices depending on the resources, subject matter, and student need.
