Future Schools: Blending Face-to-Face and Online Learning
Schorr, Jonathan; McGriff, Deborah
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v77 n5 p30-37 Jan 2012
"Hybrid schools" are schools that combine "face-to-face" education in a specific place with online instruction. In this article, the authors describe school models which offer a vision for what deeply integrated technology can mean for children's education, for the way schools are structured, and for the promise of greater efficiency amid a lengthy economic downturn. The authors' interest is specifically in schools and platforms that use technology intensively and thoughtfully to tailor instruction to individual students' needs, and provide robust, frequent data on their performance. Most of the examples are high-performing charter schools. Their designs call for bringing new productivity to the way schools deploy staff and dollars. They all share an ambition to prepare their students for success not just on tests, but in college.
