Blended Learning combines face-to-face instruction with online instruction, benefiting from the best features of each mode of teaching. Blended resources can be used to enhance curriculum, individualize instruction for different students, extend the “class hour” beyond the confines of the clock, and track student activity and assignments. Find out how this resource can be leveraged in your own district or classroom!

"The Whole is exponentially greater than the sum of all the parts." This is a quote that we often hear, but sometimes fail to apply. This concept is the philosophy of Idaho Blended Schools. Idaho Blended Schools is built around the framework of school districts from the same regions of Idaho and the Idaho Digital Learning Academy working together in a cooperative and collaborative manner to deliver standards based curriculum, on a flexible schedule, with shared highly qualified teachers. The concept of Idaho Blended Schools could prove to be the answer to the challenge of providing an alternative school choice in your district.
In this one hour webinar we will take a look at the Entrepreneurial Economics course offered by IDLA, and how that differs from the traditional Economics course offered in the state of Idaho.
