Implementation Q & A

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

Our Station Rotation model has in large part been a product of our partnership with Khan Academy-letting students work online with teacher intervention felt reasonable to implement within a Rotation model.

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

Our biggest challenge has been framed almost exclusively by the EdTech itself. When we began working with Khan Academy, the product wasn't as good as it is today, so we lost a lot of teacher buy-in when working with a challenging tool. Though it has improved measureably, we now have challenges with aligining the learning with assessment, grades, and data management, as well as ensuring we have the best content for both math and English language arts. We are still working through these challenges.

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

Having a strong digital data tool is key. We haven't been consistent with our data approach and are still trying to figure that piece out.
