Individual Rotation model seemed most appealing because we feel like this model is how we can best personalize learning for all of our students and really tailor their learning to their individual needs.
Finding the right EdTech products was a big challenge. Many products are being oversold and not delivering the promise. We involved our lead teachers in this selection to make sure we find the best fit for our needs.
Stakeholder engagement is key to success. Sharing bright spots and quick wins as well as discussing implementation pitfalls frequently is vital to the ongoing improvement and refinement of personalized learning programs.
We successfully created a competency based learning model for our students rather than moving them ahead based on seat-time. Our school was able to scale personalized learning strategies within blended classrooms thru effective use of technology, data, digital content, and augmented reality of shifting educator roles.
Harmony Science Academy is a top performing high school preparing students for college and careers with a strong emphasis on science technology, engineering and math (STEM). As a role model STEM academy designated by Texas Education Agency, our school implements a custom day design where each student has a personalized learning path that helps them maximize and personalize their learning experience. Harmony has established a blended learning model, leveraging the power of adaptive learning technologies through a competency based approach.
