"blended learning is no longer the future of classroom instruction, it is the present." Mazano, New Art and Science of Teaching
Our team has different layers of support. We have district level support that helps plan and coordinate efforts within the buildings. Administration and Instructional Design Strategists in buildings plan and deliver professional learning and integrate into the observation and coplanning cycle.
We hope and plan to be through thoughtful and purposeful planning.
Took a lot of time to meaningfully integrate: train teachers to use the tools, to understand their purposes, to create the class.
We have dedicated PL each week. Schools share with each other.
Changing the mindset: shift in instructional practices. Make sure we convey the value in this new model.
What we have done well
Targeted audience: take those early adopters & show their progress, create excitement for others.
Those who want to be involved but still skeptical -> build the relationship, let them see the progress.
Our Near Future Plans:
Scaling our efforts and providing opportunities for continued learning and implementation.
Focus Areas: Taking strategies to scale, Getting started with blended learning
