Where are we with Blended Learning?
Where do we need to go with BLENDED?
- Start to work with the students when they rotate through the stations. The teachers have used the first week and half to get the students used to logging into Chromebooks, practicing using the check off sheets, learning how to watch the teacher created videos, and just getting used to expectations that are set by the teachers in the blended learning classrooms. Now it is time to get the teachers to start to pull a small group during the stations based on their current learning levels.
- Locating resources based on the RIT scores from the NWEA Test.

What are the RoadBlocks for Blending?
- Time: Now that the technology is up and running, students are moving between stations, and data is being gathered and used, the teachers now need more time to plan, create objectives for each group, and time to find resources. The third grade teachers are excited about the whole blended learning process, they just need the ability to spend more time planning, gathering, and sharing out ideas.
- Technology: The teachers have notices that some of the third grade students are really struggling with knowing how to type, scroll, and even logging into the Chromebooks. There needs to be a set amount of time each day/week set aside to teach the students how to type, log in, and create projects using the Chromebooks.
- Headphones: The blended learning classrooms really need headphones. The more the students start to advance and learn more online, they need headphones for the videos.
