Don Bosco Tarlac adapted the Blended Learning and Full Online Distance Learning (ODL) paradigm in educating and evangelizing the young to become Good Christians and Upright Citizens. The paradigm considers first and foremost the health and safety of the Educative Pastoral Community. Blended Learning and Full Online Learning are constructivist approaches providing varied learning experiences.

Modes and Nature of Learning Modalities for Implementation

Blended Learning includes face-to-face (in-campus) interactions with online learning. Blending face-to-face learning with active learning assignments and online learning activities facilitates interactions between (a) student to student, (b) student to teacher, and (c) student to the tool. It also promotes lifelong learning through the developed skill of “discovering” information utilizing online activities, while also increasing interactive skills with a variety of others and enhancing engagement.

Face-to-Face Learning activity refers to in-person activities, including physical classroom interaction and implementation of instructions. This allows live collaboration between and among the teacher and learners. This is implemented when there is nothing that poses risk to the learner’s health and well-being.

Online Learning is a type of remote learning where the class is conducted in real-time. In a synchronous class, the teacher and students interact on an online platform. It is facilitating learning at the same time, platform and pace. Quipper is the platform to be used for this learning.


Refers to a scheduled real-time online learning activity. This mode of learning enables teachers to explain a particular concept or demonstrate a skill to a group of students at an exact time. Real-time synchronous learning activities often involve online chats and videoconferencing.


Refers to any online learning activity which can be done by a group of students independently at different times without being engaged in a real-time communication. This mode of learning enables students to do their learning activities without specific time intervals. Students can actually set their own timeframes of learning within a time boundary, giving themselves more flexibility.
