Station-rotation model is the best fit for our campus. Our model has never changed as we have been on the same campus for about 16 years.
The biggest challenge is the teacher buy-in. If an effective professional training is provided for teachers and a follow-up plan, it will increase the amount of use.
It's essential to know the characteristics of teachers before starting a full implementation. Sufficient training, teacher buy-in, and obviously the technology/facility are pillars for an effective implementation.
Professional development and effective implementation. As mentioned above, those are essential in establishing an effective system of blended learning environments.
