Blended Learning is a combination of conventional and online classroom methods to better prepare students for the future. The Bright Future for Galt Students effort reflects a unique blend of learning options based upon individual student strengths, interests and needs. Student instruction includes face-to-face teaching, virtual or digital learning tools, classroom or community learning experiences that have a purpose and address core subject content areas as well as problem solving, creativity and collaboration.
Increased Technology Access at School
Beginning in the summer of 2013, students have benefitted from an increased access to technology in the GJUESD. The technology tools have come in the form of:
- Chromebooks: Internet-connected devices that provide students with a tool for writing, presenting, publishing, and much more.
- Internet: Broadband wireless Internet access made possible by the Sacramento Educational Cable Consortium's (SECC) BestNet Project for mobile devices throughout all school campuses.
- Adaptive courseware: Instructional resources to enrich and reinforce English and math instruction, based upon classroom progress.
- Collaborative online tools: Web-based tools available to students anywhere they have Internet access for writing, creating presentations, and much more.
In addition to the technology available to students, Instructional staff in the GJUESD have also increased their access to technology tools to provide quality instruction. Among the new resources that are available to help guide instructions are:
- Laptop computers: Access to mobile computers means that staff can access online resources in all classrooms and effectively share information during meetings and workshops.
- Academic achievement data: Additional student academic information and analysis of student performance provide staff with more resources for supporting student learning.
