  • Modified 1/24/2008 <br /> 2000 ELR <br /> 1900 WILS <br /> 38 ELAR <br /> 9 blogs <br /> (soon: x video clips; x elrs with screen captures) <br />
  • “Supplemental electronic learning resources include software, videos and Internet resources.” <br />
  • “Supplemental electronic learning resources include software, videos and Internet resources.” <br />
  • “CLRN currently reviews electronic learning resources in the four core content areas: English-Language Arts, Mathematics, History-Social Science and Science. Additional content areas will be added as content standards are developed.” <br />
  • The CLRN Web Information Links (WIL) database is a collection of free primary source, secondary source, and reference web sites that are accessible though a standards based browse function or a search function. <br />
  • Probably the easiest way to begin looking for web links is through the QUICK SEARCH. The main functions of the Web Info Links Collection is accessed via a drop down menu feature on the home page. <br />
  • In 2012, the most popular blended model was Self Blend, which the Innosight Institute has just renamed the “Al la Carte” model, followed by the Enriched-Virtual, a model used by Independent Study schools in California. This seems to indicate that non-consumers, students who are using eLearning to supplement their transcript or schools that provide online courses not offered in the classroom, are a driving force. <br /> We also found that 31% of districts and direct-funded charters are utilizing more than one blended learning model. <br /> Self Blend: 60% <br /> Enriched-Virtual: 36% <br /> Rotation: 29% <br /> Flex: 17% <br />
  • In 2013, though, the Rotation method overtook the Self-Blend (46% to 40%) followed in third by Enriched Virtual. <br /> This year, 34% of districts and direct-funded charters reported they are utilizing more than one blended learning model. <br /> Self Blend: 60% <br /> Enriched-Virtual: 36% <br /> Rotation: 29% <br /> Flex: 17% <br />
  • When <br />
  • When separating elementary and unified districts, though, we found that the predominate model in elementary districts was the Rotation method, followed by 80% of districts and charters. Just 15% of elementary districts indicated they were using more than one blended model. <br /> 6 of 40 had two blended models in place. <br />
  • In unified and high school districts last year, the predominate blended model was the Self-Blend followed by Enriched Virtual. <br />
  • This year, though, the numbers flipped a little with 48% reporting using the Self-Blend, followed by the Rotation and Enriched Virtual models. 38% of these districts report using more than one blended model. <br />
  • After reading the @ChristensenInst report, “Is K-12 Blended Learning Disruptive? An introduction of the theory of hybrids”, we felt a need to ask the next question, are charter schools disruptive? Are they more likely to promote the eLearning disruptive innovation or are they creating and implementing sustaining innovations? One is a hybrid, a temporary solution. One is revolutionary. <br /> So, we looked back into our 2013 California eLearning Census data to find out if charter schools are more disruptive than traditional school districts. The answer is not what you may think. <br /> The short answer to our question is “no”. Direct-funded charters are not more disruptive when it comes to online and blended learning. Whether comparing Enriched Virtual, Flex, or A La Carte, Unified and high school districts are actually implementing more disruptive technologies than charter schools. Of the four blended models, Rotation is a sustaining innovation that is implemented in traditional classrooms. While Rotation grew in this year’s eLearning census, traditional school districts seem to be more disruptive than their direct-funded charter competition. <br />
