St. Clair Catholic DSB promotes the use of Blended Learning in its classrooms, from JK-12. Our students have access to the Provincial Learning Management System (LMS) and over 27000 resources in the Ontario Education Resource Bank (OERB) in the classroom and at home. Our teachers are able to complement and enhance good teaching practice in the traditional classroom using digital resources, guiding our students toward being responsible 21st century learners.
What is Blended Learning and how does it benefit students and teachers?
Blended Learning is a combination – or blend – of face-to-face and online learning. In Ontario, Blended Learning may be conducted through the provincial LMS, where students and teachers have access to:
- Provincially-developed content (i.e., secondary courses, elementary course packages, multimedia activities).
- Communication tools, such as the blog, pager, discussions, news, schedule, and e-mail tools.
- Assessment tools, such as dropboxes, quizzes, and surveys.
