Implementation Q & A

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

We were addressing the breadth of skills that arrived at our school (from many sending schools). We wanted a way to make sure students could be successful and have options, therefore picked a model that allows the individual to get the support at the their current level of understanding.

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

Our biggest challenge was managing the variety of student levels within one section. We are overcoming it by mirrored schedules between two teachers and a providing a third interventionist to support these teachers. Students can then move between the three instructors to get the support in small groups.

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

Go slow and don't be afraid of mistakes, they are learning opportunities for everyone.

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

We are continuing to redefine the teacher roll in conjunction to the students responsibilities within the program. We are helping students learn to advocate and search answer to their questions. Teachers are transitioning from skills and knowledge distribution to facilitator of learning.
