Implementation Q & A

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

We chose this model to reach more students with some of our strongest teachers, create a flexible learning environment for our students and implement dynamic digital instruction.

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

Designing digital content. We do not use an adaptive learning program, teachers design their course on our LMS.

Through district supplements for teachers to design highly effective digital content, and by constantly and continually adapting it to be more effective.

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

Allow your best teachers to design a class that works for them that supports student growt, and allow them to grow as a blended teacher. Allow the blended course to take advantage of the best teachers, not stifle them.

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

Teaching strategies - We have designed a conceptual class that personalizes and differentiates through project-based learning and mastery learning while building students analytical and literacy skills.

Use of space/time - Our class is built online allowing to teach more students in our building/classrooms at the same time. Right now we have a 50:1 student teacher ratio, but could scale to 75:1 and to be an entirely online class
