Implementation Q & A

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

We chose the model so that we could lay equal focus on both high performing students & slow learners so that it benefits both of them and ensures their progress at any given time. It is a self paced personalized learning program (works according to the students` learning abilities)
The model hasn't changed.

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

Class Management is one of the biggest challenges. Our Implementation team has trained Zaya teaching assistants in a variety of class management techniques- based on the grade levels- which would help them to focus on all their students without any disruptions. The team provides hands on training and assistance to these teachers on a regular basis.

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

Focus on building a solid Implementation Model based on the scale of your project, infrastructure & resources before the program launches. Make sure that there is enough time for it in the school schedule on a weekly basis.

Select up to two focus areas you feel that you demonstrate leadership in, and tell us why here:

We Introduced our teaching assistant to the idea of a blended learning model in her classroom. Although she had good pedagogical skills, she had difficulty in managing her class with technology (forming groups and rotation) but we introduced her to a short whole class instruction session followed by a tech station.
We also assisted her on how she could best use the space in her classroom to address different learning levels while also guiding her to efficiently plan her class and transition between sessions.
She was able to do this with the help of lesson plans as well as personalized reports that we provide on our platform.
