Hybrid Schools for the iGeneration
Schulte, Brigid
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v77 n1 p22-26 Sep 2011
Carpe Diem, a public charter school, is an entirely new type of school and one of only a handful of its kind in the U.S. They seek to combine the best of traditional, face-to-face instruction with the best cutting-edge online curriculum. The result is something education experts call a hybrid school. Instead of a traditional brick-and-mortar school, or the completely online clicks of a virtual school, hybrids are sometimes referred to as bricks-and-clicks schools. Unlike blended learning, where some students in traditional schools may take one or two courses online per semester in addition to their regular classes, hybrid schools typically divide up the learning so that students spend at least half the day learning on a computer and rarely sit in classrooms where everyone learns the same subject at the same time.
