Blended Learning is the use of digital technology (such as chrome books) routinely in day-to-day lessons by our students, alongside more traditional approaches using pen and paper.
As a school, we are very excited about the move towards a blended learning approach, particularly across Years 7 & 8. The new possibilities that this will bring to our students, the infinite ways it will engage them, as well as the ability for us to provide differentiated and individualised teaching strategies are some of the huge benefits of the programme.
Each department will have its own approach to blended learning, so students will use their devices in different ways throughout their school day. Of course, not all lessons will need a digital device and as such some days devices will get more use than others.
The teachers here at RPS are passionate about developing the best approach to blended learning and as such we have embedded this into our routine professional development and training, using research-based sessions to develop our approach in each department.
