Implementation Q & A

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


East Pike Elementary School experienced difficulties as it enhanced the role of technology in the classroom without significant increases in IT staffing. The school receives some help with broken and malfunctioning devices from high school technology interns. The school also addresses these problems through high-quality professional development, which gives staff members the skills they need to use technology properly and do basic troubleshooting.

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


Indiana Area School District Assistant Superintendent Jeffery Boyer advises school and district leaders to observe other successful blended-learning programs before starting their own—“don’t reinvent the wheel.” After making observational visits, schools should prepare a project budget and timeline that is reasonable for them.
