Ways Education Elements Can Support You
Readiness Assessment: What are our school’s current strengths and need areas for implementing blended learning?
We will engage in empathy work including surveys, focus groups, and virtual learning walks to include the voices of key stakeholders and collect data for teachers and leaders to design and prototype for. This step helps our partners understand where schools are as a starting point for blended learning and the impact we are hoping to achieve.
District Strategy: What is our vision for blended learning? What are our design expectations for schools? How will we train and support teachers and students?
We help you develop a District Blended Learning Council and lead them through a series of four strategy sessions to make decisions across schools and classrooms. This creates a coherent vision and support plan for all teachers. We ensure that there is alignment between what is happening at the school and district level.
Teacher Professional Development: How will we prepare teachers to launch blended learning? What will our instructional models look like? How will we support students in this new model of learning?
We believe the best way to train teachers is by modeling best practices through hands-on workshops. We typically lead a series of five blended learning workshops: Foundations, Design, Prototyping and Reflection using the core four of blended learning, or yours own customized strategies. The planning grant support includes the series of workshops to set a strong foundation for implementation with several iterations of design and prototyping.
Measuring Impact: How will we measure the impact and effectiveness of our blended learning implementation?
We provide surveys and classroom observation tools that can be customized to your schools and districts and are used to help measure the impact and effectiveness of blended learning.
