Implementation Q & A

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


We chose to go blended because we wanted to provide personalized, authentic, innovative, connected and inspired learning for every student. We’ve taken as a guiding question: Rather than teaching to the middle, how do I use data to individualize learning to a student or a group of students? It has taken four or five years for stakeholders to understand that we can facilitate a totally different mode of learning. At the beginning, educator professional development centered on learning how to use devices and applications. Now, we are able to focus on how educators are using technology to personalize learning for students.

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


We have encountered a few significant challenges using Apple devices, but Apple has started to understand these challenges and provide workable solutions. For example, Apple wanted every student to have an Apple ID when we first connected the iPads. This was a challenge because it limited device transferability. Apple has since enabled school districts to work around that requirement. Additionally, we have the ongoing challenge of serving ten- to twelve-year-old students who do not always understand how to use technology responsibly. Apple has made great changes, such that a District can control the applications downloaded to students’ iPads and teachers can monitor the screens of each student in their classes in real time.

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


Have a really robust wireless infrastructure in place. If the technology does not work, people will not use it. Any blended program is going to run into problems, but it’s worth it. Digital technology will allow teachers to do things they cannot currently imagine. It will transform learning.

School Overview

At Lineville Intermediate School, all fifth and sixth graders hailing from the five elementary schools in the Howard-Suamico School District join together as one. We pride ourselves on making our school feel like a community. Students at Lineville are grouped in Houses (teams of teachers) where they have all of their academic classes. Each house has its own name and identity, providing a sense of belonging and a smaller school environment. Our mission at Lineville is to work together with families and community to ensure that our students have the knowledge and skills to succeed in a changing world. At Lineville, we focus on the whole student, including academic progress, character building, developing social skills and helping students make a smooth transition from elementary to middle school.
