  • The ultimate power of blended and online learning lies in their potential to transform the education system and enable higher levels of learning through competency-based approaches. Technology-based models can allow for rapid capture of student performance data and differentiated instruction tailored to the specific needs of individual students. By adapting instruction to reflect the skills and knowledge students have mastered, blended and online models have the potential to keep students engaged and supported as they learn and to help them progress at their own pace, leading to dramatically higher levels of learning and attainment.
  • Where is field today relative to potential
  • iNACOL New Learning Models

    1. 1. iNACOL’s Vision for New Learning Models Allison Powell Vice President, State and District Services/New Learning Models International Association for K-12 Online Learning www.inacol.org
    2. 2. New Learning Models Vision • Staff Brainstorming • Committee Meeting Exercise • Membership Feedback
    3. 3. New Learning Models Vision • The ultimate power of blended and online learning lies in their potential to transform the education system and enable higher levels of learning through competencybased approaches. • OUR VISION OF FUTURE LEARNING MODELS IS CENTERED ON THE NEED FOR INCREASING OPPORTUNITIES, ACCESS AND EQUITY FOR ALL STUDENTS to actively engage in the highest-quality, student-centered, competency education models offering personalized learning for each and every student, so that success is the only option.
    4. 4. Vision The vision of iNACOL is to transform K-12 education toward a student-centered learning system. New learning models personalize learning using competencybased approaches, supported by blended and online learning modalities and environments.
    5. 5. Teachers use technology daily to analyze and utilize real-time data to differentiate instruction, customize learning and to engage students in deeper learning. All students are responsible for their own learning and work at their own pace by demonstrating mastery of required concepts, resulting in higher achievement and ensuring all students are prepared for both college and career.
    6. 6. • Student-centered learning means: – A. Students control all aspects of their curriculum and their learning. – B. Students have some control of their learning, but the teacher really drives their learning – C. Students and teachers work together in an ongoing way to determine the best curriculum, delivery system and schedule for student learning – D. Teachers allow students to finish their assignments when mastery has been achieved – E. I’m not sure

    8. 8. Design Principles of NLM • • • • • • • • Personalized Student-Centered Equitable and Accessible for All Students Result in Higher Student Achievement Technology-Enhanced Affordable and Sustainable Flexible Staffing Models Ensure Robust Competencies and High Standards for All Students
    9. 9. • “Student agency” means: – A. Students have some voice about how they learn, what they learn and when they learn in partnership with a teacher – B. Students develop their own groups to determine their own learning – C. Teachers determine the learning needed for each student – D. Students and teachers meet daily to determine the curriculum need for individual student learning. – E. Not sure
    10. 10. • “Equitable and Accessible for all students” means: – A. All students should have access to the same curriculum – B. Curriculum and teaching is personalized for each student presented in multiple ways – C. All curriculum should be presented in print, digital, audio and visual format so students can access learning that works best for them – D. The Flipped Teaching method provides equitable and accessible learning for all students. – E. Not Sure
    11. 11. • “Competency-based education” means: – A. When students master the content, they move on to the next lesson no matter how long it takes – B. Schools are paid when student master the content vs. seat time – C. Students advance upon mastery with measureable learning objectives and meaningful and positive assessment experiences – D. Students advance as a group from concept to concept as determined by the teacher – E. Not Sure
    12. 12. • The new roles for teachers as part of the new learning models vision includes: – A. Using technology to enhance and personalize learning – B. Provide multiple ways (face-to-face, blended, online) and flexible time for students to learn – C. Involve the student in charting their learning path – D. All of the above – E. Not sure
    13. 13. Challenges • IT Infrastructure/Broadband Access – Ensure reliable and ubiquitous student access to the Internet and quality learning materials • Quality Assurance – Old models of once a year accountability do not fit; need “GPS” model of student-centered, continuous improvement
    14. 14. Challenges • Human Capital: Teachers & Leaders (TA) – Leadership development: competencies – Re-design pre-service & in-service training to include blended/online learning – Scaling with implementation fidelity – Develop leadership capacity to lead programs, hire, evaluate, adapt, innovate new models – Develop teacher capacity to assess mastery and to use real-time data to personalize learning
    15. 15. • From the list below, which is the greatest challenge? – – – – A. Technology infrastructure B. Quality Assurance C. Leadership D. Transforming the school system to a system that is student centric and personalized – E. Professional Development and teacher buy in – What is missing? (Type this in the chat room)
    16. 16. Next Steps • Great diversity in effectiveness of courses and content available today • Increasing access alone wont lead to better outcomes • Models available need to be high quality and increase student achievement • Policy and practice must evolve to demand different and more effective models
    17. 17. Next Steps • Research • Development and identification of promising practices • Rapid prototyping • Sharing information • Building tools and capacity
    18. 18. • Anything missing? • Any other “next steps” you would like to see?
