Implementation Q & A

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


The biggest driving force was we believe we've been teaching kids how to be really good lemmings. We can put a Powerpoint up, they memorize it and give us back exactly what we want. We don't prepare them well to be critical thinkers in the world. So we wanted to change that system of learning and shift to more student-centric learning. A committee of teachers used research like Disrupting Class and Will Richardson's From Master Teacher to Master Learner. We started with a discussion of what teaching and learning should look like for this century. In the end, we're trying to move more ownership onto students, and trying to empower teachers to rethink how we make a difference for our students.
