Diller-Odell is taking part in the Nebraska BlendEd Iniative this year. Eight classroom teachers across the district have been selected to be Lighthouse teachers for the pilot program and are implementing BlendEd learning strategies. BlendEd is an educational model that combines traditional classroom methods with digital instruction and monitoring tools, offering a wealth of resources and platforms for students to enhance and demonstrate learning. Blended learning empowers students with control over time, place, path, and pace of instruction, fostering a classroom driven by students, making it more individualized, relevant, and engaging.
Third graders are excited to be a part of the BlendEd Learning Pilot program this year. They are enjoying the flexible seating choices, 1:1 chromebooks, as well as using choice boards, working in small groups, and working at their own pace. Students are practicing their collaboration and communication skills.
