Driving blended-learning at the state level | Christensen Institute | Future of Learning | Scoop.it

As blended learning continues to grow, one of the challenges education leaders are facing is the fact that knowledge of the concept spreads faster than expertise on how to foster and support it. Given this problem, it was exciting to see a new resource released yesterday by The Learning Accelerator (TLA) titled, A Framework for Cultivating High-Quality Blended Learning at the State Level. The framework provides a comprehensive overview of levers that state leaders can use for “catalyzing and accelerating blended learning.” Below are a few highlights from the framework - See more at: http://www.christenseninstitute.org/driving-blended-learning-at-the-state-level/#sthash.94pySJk7.dpuf

Accelerating Blended Learning

Accelerating Blended Learning | Future of Learning | Scoop.it
Blended learning combines traditional face-to-face instruction, usually offered by a teacher in a traditional school building with high-quality digital content, including online instruction and other technological tools. In its most effective form, blended learning personalizes the learning of each student, allowing opportunities for students to take both required and elective courses and create a portfolio of opportunities and paths to succeed. Successful blended learning also allows for competency-based progression that empowers students to move at their own pace and advance only when they have mastered content; and uses technology to make implementation possible at scale. These three key elements of blended learning are what TLA focuses on in its work.
