The ASA Education Model: BLU – Blended Learning Universe
ASA is a 21st century innovative technology based blended learning school We implement what we call
the Blended Learning Universe, BLU for short utilizes: the flex model, online Calvert International
accredited curriculum, project based learning for deeper learning, certified teachers in our classrooms
and online U.S based certified content expert teachers, coupled with learning coaches throughout the
Students attend school on a regular basis and have a schedule that will vary based on the student’s
specific learning needs, courses, pace, and interests. Our BLU lends itself to instructional technology
playing a key role in the acquisition and application of knowledge for our students. Because students
are at the school, as new academic concepts are being delivered digitally, teachers can provide support
through small group discussions or one-on-one tutoring. Students can also email one of their teachers
(US or classroom teacher), if they prefer. Learning coaches are always available to assist, monitor and
encourage students too. Students are given digital periodic check points, quizzes, and tests and deeper
learning project based activities to determine mastery and achievement levels. The teachers can review
their dashboards to see progress and immediate results of each student at any given time.
What are the benefits?
The BLU flex model offers students more freedom throughout the school day and in practice has proved
to be particularly effective in engaging students. It’s not a traditional classroom structure. Ours is a
student centered approach – students learn at their own pace online and have teachers available in
person to deliver small group instruction, facilitate collaborative projects, or deliver small group or 1:1
intervention or academic supplements. The BLU flex model allows for more independent learning and
application of content empowering students to take charge of their education.
