Implementation Q & A

What was one of your biggest challenges when going blended, and how did you overcome it?


The online curriculum is not necessarily well-suited for a school that is so committed to being project-based. Online content providers don't provide data in a singular source, so comparing student data from different sources and getting the important data out of those systems has been challenging for the school.

What's the one piece of advice you'd give to emerging blended-learning programs?


Before implementing anything, you need to understand the purpose of the technology: what are the skills you want students to gain, and will this software help them to build that skill set? Sometimes technology is implemented just for fun rather than for outcomes, so you must continually evaluate its utility and effectiveness.

School Overview

Da Vinci Innovation Academy first opened with families in mind: they wanted to personalize the students' learning environment by combining school-site instruction with home-based learning. Da Vinci gives homeschool students the opportunity to engage in project-based learning and utilize online curriculum to best suit each individual learner's needs.
