Implementation Q & A

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


Every year you will have one or two students and/or parents who don't understand the flipped classroom. So you have to be really clear with them that this is a better way for a student to learn the material themselves rather than merely having the teacher teach it to the whole class (to varying degrees of learning).

Implementation Q & A

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


At the beginning, it was a challenge getting the students to not be completely distracted by the iPad – you had to teach them to use the chat responsibly and not just make silly comments. Also, with the self-paced lessons, Antony wasn't getting so many questions from the students, so he realized that he had to adapt to this and make sure that they were still communicating.

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


Don't be afraid to experiment and take risks – there are so many different ways of doing blended learning. Just be sure to keep communication in the classroom.

Implementation Q & A

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


At the beginning of the school year, our principal mentioned the flipped classroom approach in his start-of-the-year address. I wanted to try this out because I had a range of students who may not speak English as their first language or who had learning disabilities. I wanted a way to differentiate my instruction. So I started making videos for students (not just pulling videos from Khan Academy because they needed to hear the content from me). I originally wanted it to be a true flipped classroom in that students would watch the videos online and come to class prepared to do exercises, but it's difficult to do that with younger students, so I ended up organizing things to include both the video instruction and practice part in-class.

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


There are two main challenges for me in this blended-learning model. One is the time it takes to create all of these videos for my students. I have gotten better and more efficient at it, but it's still a process. Second is control over the technology. We run into issues with students not using the iPads in a productive way, and so we have to teach them how to use it to really just further their learning.
