Implementation Q & A

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


CVES administration began with the Station Rotation model because it fit easily into their pre-existing school structure. From there, the school moved toward Individual Rotation, giving students flexibility and freedom in their class structure and in the way they demonstrate their learning. Soon thereafter, the school conducted a survey, asking students about their access to technology at home, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the vast majority of students had access to technology. The school then decided to implement Flipped Classroom as one of their go-to models.

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


One of the biggest challenges for CVES was helping teachers transition from the known to unknown. In the beginning, it was difficult for teachers to see what their role was in the classroom if they were not in the front of the room, teaching lessons.

It was also a challenge to explain to teachers that students had a voice. The school was already a successful, recognized school, and the administration needed to convince teachers that they still needed to change in order to keep improving themselves. However, the administration truly believed that implementing blended learning was the best way to advocate for students and to do what was best for them.

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


Start small. Have a very clear plan of what you envision from beginning to end. Know each model, know what you’re taking on, and think through the logistics of your model. You also want to spend some time setting up expectations for students and establish how you will document students' learning when they are working independently.
