Only 51% of respondents are meeting all the online learning demands of their students while 96% know that students demonstrate improved learning when technology is integrated into the curriculum
Also, we know schools are still struggling to get ALL courses taught by highly qualified teachers while offering ALL of the courses that students want to take at times they want to take them
The Project Tomorrow research helped guide is towards this solution by showing us that each stakeholder in learning communities sees value in using the power of technology in K-12 learning environments.

Kamehameha Schools, founded and endowed by the legacy of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, our schools’ mission is to provide educational opportunities in perpetuity to improve the capability and well-being of people of Hawaiian ancestry. We currently have 30 preschool sites statewide and 3 K-12 campuses on O’ahu, Maui and Hawai’i servicing more than 6,500 students. In addition to the campuses, our Community Education programs, collaborations and scholarships service an additional 30,000 individuals.
Culture-based curriculum provided relevance, which enhanced student relationships with their culture, other students and the curriculum resulting in rigor. Addressing diverse learners in the curriculum was essential for our learners, in particular our high school courses because we had a wide range of learners from at-risk to gifted.

Ways to Learn More and Get Started
Blended Learning: Where Online and Face-to-Face Instruction Intersect
for 21st Century Teaching and Learning
Blended learning, the teaching practice that combines teaching methods from both face-to-face and online
learning, is an established, rapidly growing model of instruction. It has proven highly effective in helping schools
and districts address the challenges of student achievement, limited resources, and the expectations of 21st
century learners. This paper reviews the working definitions of blended learning, explores relevant efficacy data,
recaps innovative and practical implementation models and provides profiles of several schools and districts that
are experiencing success with their blended learning programs.
The Rise of K-12 Blended Learning
In 2009, more than 3 million K-12 students took an online course. This paper by the Innosight Institute shares
information collected from a market survey of the emerging blended-learning environment. Research shows that
blended learning is gravitating toward six models. This paper explains these models and gives use case examples
for how districts are incorporating blended learning into the curriculum.
