West Valley School District incorporates blended learning

Posted: Updated:

WEST VALLEY, WA - A combination of traditional teaching methods with the use of technology, blended learning is a way to enhance student's learning with the use of Google Chrome Books. West Valley School District is one of the only school districts in the Central Washington area incorporating blended learning into their school's curriculum. For two years, 3rd graders to 12th graders have received Chrome books to help their learning. 

Students are also able to have a more personalized learning experience with the use of blended learning. Personalized learning helps students have a voice when it comes to learning. Students are able to pick the pace of their learning and they're able to go ahead of other students or their teachers. Superintendent Dr. Mike Brophy tells us, "a higher level of interest, the level of engagement is much higher in students, and the performance of students is much higher because students actually get to have more choice in the matter."
