Implementation Q & A

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


We started using blended learning based on the work Aline Soares did with the Lemann Foundation's blended-learning teaching experimentation group. In fact, coordinator Ms. Soares used technology before joining the group, but it was still very precarious. Working with a group, she was able to experiment with other ways of using technology. Both she and the school liked it and saw great opportunities for the students and very positive results in our practice.

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


Teachers who start using technology need to take risks, and need to test things in their practice. Teachers are often very afraid to use technology because they do not know how beneficial it can be to teaching and learning. But in fact, from the moment you try it you can see that it is beneficial.

Another important point is that the school needs to empower its teachers. So, it is important for the school to be clear that it is not enough to just want to adopt an innovative practice if it does not enable its practitioners to do so.
