From yesterday’s inbox… An interesting opportunity for those who wish to get a preview of these courses.
Thank you for your interest in online learning solutions.
K12/ Aventa offers the flexibility to use your district teachers, our teachers or any combination, and to have courses loaded onto your learning management system or you can use ours. I have attached our extensive course listing for core/electives and credit recovery.
There are many reasons that districts like yours are using virtual learning:
* Individualized options for gifted and talented or struggling learners
* Schools not able to find qualified staff to teach a particular course (especially foreign languages)
* Schools wishing to provide a quality online learning experience
* Students who want to take courses not currently offered in their school or district
* Schools looking to add summer school alternatives
Students are experiencing great success with K12/Aventa curriculum!
Please let me know if you would like to preview some of our courses. Let me know what day/time is convenient for you. We would just need 30-45 minutes of your time.

Using blended learning to engage students,
Original Webcast: October 18, 2011
Blended learning, which incorporates the best elements of online and face-to-face instruction, offers educators the opportunity to personalize learning for every student. Determining the best mix of online and face-to-face instruction is the key to building a successful program, but the same mix isn’t appropriate for all students.
This web seminar will explore how two schools are successfully using blended learning models to meet their students’ needs. Topics will include:
- How to plan for and implement a blended learning program.
- How to determine the right mix of online and face-to-face instruction for students.
- Understanding the differences in blended learning programs.
- How to analyze the multiple layers of data required to craft the most effective programs.
- How to assess the effectiveness of a blended learning program.
Who will benefit:
Superintendents, curriculum directors, technology coordinators and other district leaders with responsibility for online learning initiatives. Anyone may attend.
