Blended Learning – AIMS

Blended Learning is the fusion of online and teacher-led instruction. It selects and organizes content from the vast resources of the internet and places customized instructional units in the skilled hands of the classroom teacher and at the fingertips of the student. Blended Learning is the pedagogical tool that makes student-centered instruction possible. Our data-driven, outcomes-based methodology includes ongoing training and support for teachers. We call it AIMS – Assess, Instruct, Measure and Support. Learn more here.
