Hi Rachel - this is such an important question for the field but one that we don't have a clear answer to yet. At the Institute and as a field, we are working to gain a better understanding of the depth and scope of blended-learning practices across the country, but still lack an accurate way to quantify exactly what's happening and at what scale. In Disrupting Class in 2008, Michael Horn and Clayton Christensen predicted that half of all high school classes in the US would be delivered online in some form by 2019. We hope that over the next two years we will be able to gain a more precise snapshot of K-12 blended learning to understand how that prediction is playing out. As far as your question regarding the BLU: as of today, there are 563 schools and districts from around the world in the BLU Directory. BLU Directory Read more...

Hi, Rachel,My district has been working with Education Elements @EdElements on framing our integration of personalized learning (blended instruction) in Putnam County and have gained a tremendous amount of information and direction from this experience. Here are a few links to information that I can share with you and please feel free to contact me any time for more information: [email protected], 931-260-7873.Links:http://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/428371/Core_Four/Education_Elements_Core_Four_White_Paper.pdf?t=1477373686268https://www.khanacademy.org/partner-content/ssf-cci/sscc-intro-blended-learning/sscc-blended-learning-models/v/sscc-blended-4modelshttp://www.inacol.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/iNACOL_Whats-Possible-with-Personalized-Learning.pdf?platform=hootsuitehttps://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2NY7aS1dtgWTnltZmFodlAzbkJkWE16aXktdFdteWp1dGJF/viewHave a great day and I hope this helps.Sam Read more...

Hi Rachel! Have you read the reports from the National Education Policy Center? They have statistics about nationwide blended and online schools:http://nepc.colorado.edu/publication/virtual-schools-annual-2017 I am sorry that I am posting this several months after the fact, but maybe if you need the stats in the future you can use this.

It largely depends on the number of students, their prior knowledge, personal and shared resources and learning goals. Our school has a BYOD program.I flip my classes via Edmodo and connected apps and sometimes Google Classroom and Microsoft Apps. I usually create hyperDocs , LiveBinders or Onenote Notebooks or Symbaloo lesson plans or Versal courses with options to support integrated skills in individual and collaborative tasks based on student's voice and choice with timely and deferred feedforward , and permanent assessment.

Hi Stefanie. Do you feel the challenge is managing instruction for truant students or for students at different places on the platform in general? While my schools do not use the Summit Platform, we have a math course called Navigate Math that has students move at their own pace, requiring us to figure out how to support students working multiple units apart (students in our 9th grade Nav Math classes enter with 5th grade math skills on average). The spread comes from students having different academic and non-academic skill capacities and different mindsets. Here is an overview of the course at the Learning Accelerator's (TLA) practices website.We found that unmotivated students (this includes some truant students for us) were one type of challenge for us while supporting asynchronous learning was a separate issue. Two solutions we came up with that attempted to address both were small group pulling in a flex model to work with the teacher based on data and Cooperative Learning Teams. We use the Gooru Learning Navigator (we co-created the Learning Navigator w/ Gooru) but the platform doesn't really matter. What did matter to us was having ways for both teachers and students to track their progress. While students first engage with learning resources themselves, the teacher uses the data to pull groups of struggling students for mini-lessons each day in a flex model. This has helped us manage learning, whether it be helping students make meaning from resources they explore or by conducting direct instruction and investigation with students.The second practice we use is Cooperative Learning Teams. Essentially, it's an approach we created off of some research at Johns Hopkins that creates positive horizontal accountability among groups of students to help them function as a team and support one another. It creates greater buy in, helping address students working in different places and a diverse range of mindsets and motivation, possibly speaking to the truancy challenge you have. It helps make visible to students specific behaviors that support learning in an asset-based way that builds community and accelerates learning. You can view a guide with links to resources including prototype dashboards here at TLA's Learning Commons. Hope these ideas help! Read more...

Hi there! Thanks for your question. You might want to check out LEAP InnovatED Summit in Chicago August 28th. There's also ASCD's Conference on Teaching Excellence in Texas, June 29-July 1. And while it's less about blended learning specifically, Big Bang run by Big Picture Learning in late July is another great event. Have a great summer of learning! Read more...

Hi Phyllis, the way in which you arrange your space will relate closely to the options you provide your students inside the classroom. There are some middle school examples of classroom/building setups, as well as strategies describing how a blended learning classroom looks like at other levels, here:https://practices.learningaccelerator.org/do/practices/integration/use-of-space?grade=&audience=&stage= Read more...
