Blended Learning is a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through delivery of content and instruction via digital and online media with some element of student control over time, place, path, or pace. At Quitman, Blended learning is a mindset.” The blended learning approach incorporates the teaching of Math, Language Arts and Science. Students receive at least 80-100 minutes of blended instruction every day. The use of technology engages the students enabling them to be active participants in their own learning while simultaneously providing differentiated instruction.
