In Rocketship Education's new blended learning model, as many as 109 students occupy one large classroom, rotating among differently sized groups of children for different learning activities. An individual student transitions between learning activities 15 times a day or more, splitting time between large, medium, and small groups, and shifting between working with credentialed teachers and doing online lessons.
