Our Project > Overview
What is the Flagship K-12 Blended Learning Pilot Project?
The Flagship K-12 Blended Learning Pilot Project is a collaboration between the Hunter Chinese Flagship Program and the Jericho School District to build a national model for K-12 students to demonstrate how high school graduates can achieve advanced level proficiency (following ACTFL guidelines) in Chinese using the blended learning model.

The blended learning model combines traditional face-to-face classroom instruction with individualized online synchronous and asynchronous instruction.  Hunter’s blended learning model was developed by identifying best practices for both second language acquisition and personalized online learning. Fundamentally, it is designed to ensure that learners receive sufficient input, have opportunities for output and interaction, receive both implicit and explicit feedback, and work within a task-based framework. Students maximize learning outcomes by learning in two ways: sharing and interacting in a group setting, and individual instruction that focuses on personal learning interests and needs to maximize learning outcomes.  The project also conducts research into best practices and disseminates learning results in order to improve the quality of Chinese language education in the United States.
