Implementation Q & A

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


One of the biggest challenges for Loris Middle School was building teachers' confidence in the grouping of students and the use of technology and digital resources. Teachers were provided ongoing staff development onsite based on needs of the school, as well as individual teachers. Coaching, peer observations, constructive feedback, and other appropriate resources were provided to teachers to help them be successful in the new blended model.

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


Ann Hall, principal of Loris Middle School, advises schools to promote successful instruction by giving teachers "time to become fully immersed in the learning and proficient in the process, one stage at a time."
