From traditional to 21st-century learning.
At Hale Kula Elementary in Schofield, Ms. Cummings 5th grade media awareness class is learning the basics of what will become a full blown, pilot program next fall.
"I like the idea that our lessons are up there and our students can access them at anytime," said Cummings.
"I've had to learn a lot of stuff I didn't know," said teacher Rachel Armstrong.
Rachel Armstrong is one of two teachers leading what will be called “Blended Learning," where kids come to class two days a week, then work from home three days a week online.
"I think it's a shift in your mindset about how you think about teaching. It's not you standing up there doing everything. I think that's great actually. I think it gives you more time to be with the individual student and what they're needs are," said Armstrong.
"It's fun. Yeah. You get to get out of class though. Yeah that's fun," laughs 5th grader Mason Wood.
Wood, like most kids in the media class, loves the idea.
He did his book report online.
His classmates finished a video presentation for Olelo.
