Blended Learning at East Boston High

Creating opportunity through blended learning at East Boston High School.

by Cathie Maglio, Blended Learning SPECIALIST

I witnessed something special in an MCAS Prep class at East Boston High.

I walked into the class and saw students walking around with their laptops talking. As I moved farther into the classroom I saw they were all logged into their math application solving algebra problems, which may sound like nothing much but they were all working together, helping each other, trying to solve the problems without asking the teacher. And I saw one student explaining how to do a problem in Spanish so other students could understand.

$1 Million of College Savings for Students

One million dollars.

That’s how much JFYNetWorks has saved college-bound students.

How? By helping them build the skills to meet college entry requirements. Our high school-based blended learning programs have helped thousands of students improve their skills and eliminate over 2000 remedial college courses. The savings in tuition and fees have now passed the one million dollar mark.

A million dollars. The idea has deep American resonance. No amount of inflation can dim the luster of its gold-rush gleam.

Today’s gold rush is college. A two-year degree is worth $300,000 more in lifetime earnings than a high school diploma. A four-year degree gains $800,000.

President urges action on common goals

“Education is an investment in human capital,” President Obama said, kicking off the White House College Opportunity Day of Action on December 4. “It’s both a moral and an economic issue. When we give young people the opportunity to chase their dreams, we’re investing in our collective future.”

The President was addressing a group of 500 college presidents, school superintendents, nonprofit executives and other education and business leaders who had been invited to join the White House Summit on College Opportunity to support the President’s goal of leading the world in college attainment by helping more students prepare for and graduate from college.
