Implementation Q & A

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

We've been through many challenges in implementing blended learning at Achieve. One of the biggest is moving from doing blended learning as an initiative to treating it as what we do and building a culture around it. We'd also like to improve our professional development by finding time to show teachers how to use data and connect them to share their goals and pitfalls. We'd also like to have more devices so we can take advantage of all the technology, and with that, we're looking to expand into other subjects.

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

In order to sustain your blended-learning program, you need to follow up with your teachers-this can be through a continuously updated handbook, resources, and PD time. In the same vein, teachers and administrators alike need reflection time to talk and evaluate their progress.
