Leadership in Blended Learning

Paradigm Shift is Changing........

In a small school on the South Side of Chicago, 40 children between the ages of five and six sit quietly learning in a classroom. In front of each of them is a computer running software called Reading Eggs. Some are reading a short story, others building sentences with words they are learning. The least advanced are capturing all the upper- and lower-case Bs that fly past in the sky. As they complete each task they move through a cartoon map that shows how far they have progressed in reading and writing. Along the way they collect eggs which they can use to buy objects in the game, such as items to furnish their avatar’s apartment. Now and then a child will be taken aside for scheduled reading periods with one of the two monitoring teachers.

Learning is Personalized

Imagine the possibilities if a student who is struggling in mathematics had a personalized Learner Plan that through contributions from himself, his parents, support staff, and teachers provided a path for learning to address his individual needs. He logs into his school system role-based portal, providing him with a display of the most relevant data about his current math performance including a formative assessment taken earlier in the day. The data show that he has yet to master yesterday’s standards and his teacher, after analysis of the data, has used her connection into the data system’s Learning Marketplace to identify learning activities and resources to automatically populate his Learner Plan. These are immediately accessible for his use and to formulate a plan for his remediation of standards not mastered.
