Implementation Q & A

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

Initially, Summit Public Schools tried piloting a Station Rotation model of blended learning for math using Khan Academy. After a year of using that model, school leaders evaluated the data and realized they needed not only to blend face-to-face and online instruction, but to rethink the entire school experience. As a result, they pioneered a self-paced and self-directed learning environment in which they reimagined the roles of the students and the teachers, rethought and redesigned the learning spaces, and removed time-based practices that hindered personalized learning.
