Implementation Q & A

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


The biggest obstacles have resulted from its being a small school in a very large district. The school received its approval to open late and consequently could not hire teachers until two weeks before the start of the school year. Also, the school could not take online attendance for the first two months of the school year and things like single sign-on, security certificates, firewalls, and connectivity have been issues for the school since it opened. Managing the data streams from the various blended-learning programs has also been a challenge.

School Overview

Located in the heart of Silicon Beach, Los Angeles's startup ecosystem, the school's mission is to launch the entrepreneurial teams of tomorrow by building a culture of self-starting. To engage students in managing themselves and their own learning, the school uses gamification, a school economy, and learning dashboards. The Incubator School's learning pathways embrace technology-based learning, project-based learning, game-based learning, and socio-emotional learning. It also recognizes that in today's complex world, expertise is diffuse and located in many places beyond the teacher; it brings in real-world experts and skill-share student expertise to enable its Innovators to work collaboratively to impact the world outside school boundaries.
