Implementation Q & A

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

Teachers in our district have been using the station rotation model for years. We decided to scale it up into all our district schools and infuse and streamline digital curriculum, content, and assessments so that there is continuity between all schools and so that we can access data efficiently. We also have teachers that are experimenting with flipped classroom and personalized learning. We have created elements that teachers must include in their station rotation and content creations. We chose station rotation because our goal is to blend the best of face to face instruction and online learning to increase small group and one on one teacher instruction.

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

Providing professional learning opportunities for teachers on how to implement blended learning and time to curate and create content are our biggest challenges. Our educational foundation supported a grant to fund an online course in blended learning on Coursera for teachers: Blended Learning: Personalizing Education for Students
New Teacher Center, Silicon Schools Fund & Clayton Christensen Institute
Over 100 teachers on our district have completed the course.
We also provided time for teachers to create content on professional learning days.

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

Engage all stakeholders: parents, students, teachers, administrators. Communicate the need or blended learning and how the school will endeavor to implement. Visit other schools and connect with leaders that have experience in blended learning.
