    blendED Learning - High School

    LISD provides blendED learning opportunities fo high school students across the district. A blendED course is ideal for high school students who

    • want a flexible learning environment
    • want to work and go to school
    • want more time in the school day to practice for an activity or sport
    • want to develop future ready skills:  collaboration, communication, time-managent, and organization
    • want more opportunities for self-directed learning

    LISD blendED classes offer the best of both worlds: online and face-to-face instruction. Students do not have to be physically present on campus on an online day. They have Flexible Mobility and may meet with their teacher for one-on-one or small group instruction, collaborate with their peers in a flexible leraning space on campus, or work from home or other off-campus location. On class days, students engage in class discussion, collaboration, project work, practice, and labs.

    BlendED courses are currently offered at the following high schools: The Colony High School, Lewisville High School, Flower Mound High School, Marcus 9th Grade Center, and Marcus High School.

     

    blendED Learning - Middle School

    LISD also provides blendED learning opportunities at the middle school level. The program, first piloted at Creek Valley Middle School under the direction of Dr. Nicole Jund, offers students

    • more opportunities for individual and personalized instruction
    • more intensive support when needed
    • more opportunities to develop sills for blended and online learning as they advance in their education
    • more voice and choice in how they learn and a better understanding of how they learn best

    Flexible Mobility is structured differently at middle school. Students must be physically present on campus five days a week for a blendED class.  They may, however, leverage flex spaces on an online day for independent work and collaboration, or they may choose to work one-on-one or in small groups with their teacher.
