Blended Learning Facilitator Guide
During our West Hawaiʻi Pilot with DOE middle schools, we created a blended delivery format beginning with the virtual huakaʻi (field trip) in the classroom, and culminating in a physical huakaʻi to Kahaluʻu Ma Kai, complete with activities such as a cultural tour/familiarization, Breakout EDU activity, and community service activity. See below to access the facilitator guide for our particular blended format.
