Implementation Q & A

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

Teacher Eric Rodrigues realized that there must be a better way to conduct his class when he noticed that his students werent achieving their full potential in his history class: over 30% of the students were not passing his class, even though he expected almost all of them to. So he re-thought the way he conducted his class: he wanted to stop being the "sage on the stage" and become more of a facilitator for student learning. With an individual rotation, students can have a richer learning experience by learning in multiple formats and in a way that is more competency-based than their normal classes.

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

Practice and reflect. Many times schools and teachers spend a long time debating theory, having meetings, and discussing changing classes, but actually execute very little. It is essential to act more and reflect with concrete data. From there, you can develop projects and processes with your real experiences.
