Prep Teams up with SACHS for Blended Learning
UIW Prep has teamed up with St. Anthony Catholic High School (SACHS) to offer blended learning in a pilot program to freshmen and seniors of SACHS. This unique program (also referred to as “hybrid” learning) provides students the opportunity to earn high school credit for each successfully completed course. UIW Prep’s blended learning combines the traditional face-to-face classroom methods with UIW Prep’s online learning platform, while engaging students with e-mail, screencasts, YouTube videos, and other forms of interactive digital tools. This integrated, flipped classroom approach maximizes the student’s learning experience while addressing each student with compelling and current mediums. Teachers allow the students to interact with each other in an open space classroom environment, where they are able to use higher order thinking skills, instead of being a passive learner that is not so frequently engaged.
