Today we are trying something new. This blog post is being posted here and on the Clayton Christensen Institute website and is a collaboration between our organizations. We consider the Christensen Institute to be great partners in the field, pushing districts forward in great ways, but we don't always agree on everything. Check out our reactions to their post about station rotations below.
Late last year we published a blog post on new evolutions on top of Station Rotation blended learning models that we’d been hearing about from educators in our Blended Learning Universe (BLU). Our friends at Education Elements didn’t agree fully with the way we characterized these shifts. In the spirit of healthy debate, we sat down with Amy Jenkins and Scott Johns on the Ed Elements team to hear more how their work reveals the ways in which Stations Rotation classrooms remain a big part of the blended learning equation—especially as a promising onramp to pursuing blended and personalized learning.
