We take into account the school facility, scheduling, technology resources, and staff and student needs, and collaborate with educators to design and configure schools’ physical setup and schedule to maximize instruction and learning.We have found the “rotation” and “flex” models to be the best ways to combine online learning and offline teaching to meet the needs of students and schools. Unlike pure “face-to-face” teaching, these models integrate technology into the core instructional time, with greater personal attention given to students than in purely online environments.
