    • 1. www.inacol.org Planning, Implementing and Sustaining a Blended Learning Program Dr. Allison Powell Vice President, State and District Services Dr. Rob Darrow President, Online Learning Visions June 2014
    • 2. Contact Information and Workshop Documents • Allison – apowell@inacol.org • Rob – rob@onlinelearningvisions.com • Documents (Friday) - http://bit.ly/fridaybl • Documents (Sat) - http://bit.ly/saturdaybl – Virtual parking lot – any other questions, comments, etc. – Handout – Resources – Presentation Slides
    • 3. Introductions • Around the room – Position, location – Stage of blended learning implementation – What you hope to gain from this workshop
    • 4. http://youtu.be/_LyuLJSByvI
    • 5. How well is our current K-12 system functioning? The critical question is whether we are preparing our students for the knowledge workforce; the globally competitive workforce. Currently – national high school graduation rate of 68% 80% of jobs are requiring a post-secondary degree or certification Depends on who you ask
    • 6. Online and Blended Learning as a catalyst for change
    • 7. Blended Learning The Definition
    • 8. Blended Learning: What does “it” look like?
    • 9. Yes, No, Maybe?
    • 10. Yes, No, Maybe?
    • 11. Tech-rich = blended
    • 12. Teaching and Learning • What the student is doing and where the student is.  What the teacher is doing and where the teacher is.  What and where the content is.
    • 13. Blended learning definition A formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online delivery of instruction and content, with some element of student control over time, place, path and/or pace and at least in part in a supervised brick-and- mortar location away from home and the modalities along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience. Horn & Staker, 2013
    • 14. Defining Terms • What makes something: – Blended Learning – Online Learning – Competency-based Learning – Personalized Learning • How do these work together?
    • 15. There are blended learning Models
    • 16. Emerging blended-learning models Horn & Staker, 2012
    • 17. Rotation Flex Self-Blend Enriched Virtual • Station rotation • Lab rotation • Flipped Classroom • Individual rotation Online platform with F2F support and fluid schedules Students attend physical school & take 1 or more courses online Students learn sometimes at a physical school, other times remotely Emerging models of blended learning
    • 18. The models are good, but…
    • 19. @MichaelbHorn Tweet “If you cannot identify the front of the room, you are probably in a disruptive / blended classroom” – #inacol13, Oct. 2013
    • 20. There is some blended learning Research
    • 21. Research Perspective: Can’t study it if it doesn’t exist • 1994 – First K-12 online schools • 2001 – First K-12 online schools report • 2004 – First report about “blended learning” – college • K-12 Online Learning: About 20 years old • K-12 Blended Learning: About 15 years old
    • 22. What does the research say? • Very little because: –Takes time to study an innovation –Case Studies – always begins the research
    • 23. Implementing blended learning (or any innovation)
    • 24. Everett Rogers. Diffusion of Innovations (1963) • “One cannot seek knowledge about an innovation until he or she knows it exists.”
    • 25. Rogers: Adopter Categories Innovators – Early Adopters – Early Majority – Late Majority - Laggards
    • 26. In every study… (Rogers, 2003) • Role of “change agent” or champion • Common adoption characteristics from innovator to laggard • Common way innovation reaches “critical mass” or “tipping point” • Common communication methods that influence earlier adoption • S-shaped curve of adoption over time
    • 27. We are pretty clear Face-to-Face Teaching • Students in classroom • Teacher in classroom • Interaction face-to-face, mostly verbal, some visual • Fixed schedule of classes to attend • Prescribed curriculum based on standards / use of textbooks Online Teaching • Students online • Teacher online (minimal face-to-face interaction) • Interaction online video conferencing, email – more visual, less verbal • Flexible schedule for work completion • Prescribed curriculum based on standards / text
    • 28. From Textbook to Online Teaching Online Teaching Textbook Enhanced Teaching Technology Enhanced Teaching Web / Online Enhanced Teaching
    • 29. …And pedagogical shifts take time
    • 30. Not About the Technology • Change in teaching • Change in learning • Change in pedagogy • Change in class organization • Things should look different in a blended learning environment, more student centric, more personalized learning
    • 31. Blended Learning is About… • Rethinking how class is structured • How time is used • How resources are allocated • Personalizing the learning for all students – better learning engagement • Student centric learning • Teachers using data daily to customize learning for students
    • 32. Group Work (30 Minutes) • Documents (Friday) - http://bit.ly/fridaybl • Documents (Sat) - http://bit.ly/saturdaybl • Introductions (position, etc. stage of blended learning) • 20 Minutes Group Work by Case Study – Learn about School (reading, videos, etc.) – How has teaching/learning changed? – What is different about this school? (class, time, resources, students, teachers) – How are teachers using data on a daily basis to customize learning? – How is learning more student centric? Discuss with table • 10 Minutes Report Out
