The goal of this paper is to highlight how personalized, blended learning can improve access to high-quality learning opportunities for secondary students. To do so, this paper focuses on various experiences of high school students in districts across the country that are accessing FuelEd courses to blend learning.
The implementation of new college- and career- ready standards and the next generation of student assessments creates a unique opportunity to explore ways in which the traditional educational experience can and should evolve. Increasingly, schools and districts across the country are harnessing the power of technology to meet the higher and deeper expectations that the new standards demand. Yet the potential of bringing technology into the classroom goes well beyond its uses as a tool for accessing new and customized content—it involves reimagining the roles of students and their learning experiences. When schools use technology in tandem with face-to-face instruction to personalize instruction, it is called "blended learning."
