MSD Warren Township has designed and implemented blended learning according to a belief that every learner deserves a personalized approach. The MSD of Warren Township's path to personalized learning is divided into several phases. These phases provided a clear path to the desired outcomes of personalized learning. Phases are unique to each teachers interests, preferences, and learning styles. After all, we are talking about personalization. Warren's first critical move to these desired outcomes is incorporating student "voice" and "choice" through blended learning classrooms. Ultimately, all Warren students will have daily choices that increase the rigor and complexity of the tasks they complete, and each teacher's lesson's will be adjusted based on student feedback. This critical move allows teachers to value the input and preferences of students in a data-driven environment that values rigorous explicit instruction.
District cabinet members worked with Education Elements to refine the vision, work out digital curriculum, and think about the cohort structure of the blended learning rollout. This high-level team decided on a rollout divided across three cohorts. Each school's design team then included one principal and three to four teachers. This team led design workshops, supported by Education Elements, to plan out blended learning implementation at their school.
