Implementation Q & A

When you first implemented blended learning, why did you choose that particular model? (has your model changed? why?)


Station rotation allowed our school to set a good structure to create a personalized learning model while keeping the focus at the standards based instruction to maintain accountability. As our students and teachers became more knowledgeable and proficient in blended learning, our model changed slightly by adding both lab rotation and individual rotation to create more fluid schedules and further personalize learning of our students.

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


Creating teacher buy-in and changing educator mindset was our biggest challenge in launching blended learning. We overcame this challenge by actively engaging our teachers in the design process, looking at data to determine what works and what doesn't, and constantly having conversations about the promise of blended learning and how it yields strong achievement and growth from pilot sites.

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


Strategic planing , professional development, and engaging key stakeholders in the process.
