Implementation Q & A

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


I think we started blending without even realizing it. Our math department has been future focused and saw the direct benefit of individualized on-line learning for math. Lab rotations just made sense at the time. Over time we have seen the benefit of station rotations to better address student academic needs and provide smaller groups for instruction. We can see ourselves adopting Flex characteristics in the next 2-3 years.

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


creating student autonomy and managing student behavior in a self directed learning path. We overcame this by constant trial and error relying on strong collaborative efforts. Each curricular department will be unique in terms of implementation and the issues that will present.

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


Start with your superstar teachers who have community credibility first... resist the temptation to you use new or inexperienced teachers to initiate your blended learning initiative.

Select up to two focus areas you feel that you demonstrate leadership in, and tell us why here:


It is important to model blended learning for teachers so they can experience what you are trying to create. We create online Canvas modules on teaching pedagogy and deliver that quarterly to teachers.
Inherent in on-line learning is the capability for students to learn at their own rate. If a student demonstrates competency in a content area they should be advanced to the next grade level. We have executed a pathway in mathematics that is working for students and their families.
