Blended Learning: Measuring Impact and Planning for the Future

Blended learning is defined by the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation as “a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through the online delivery of content and instruction, with some element of student control over time, place, path and/ or pace,” and “at least in part at a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home.” 

Every second Thursday of the month, Michele Eaton takes the #INeLearn PLN through a guided discussion on blended or online learning. This week's topic is the final in a series: Deep Dive into Blended Learning.  We have opted to share the questions in advance this week with the goal of providing potential participants more time to prepare their responses. We hope to see you on the hashtag at 9pm EST.

Q1: What gains (academic or otherwise) are you/your school district hoping to see through a blended learning initiative?

Q2: Picture a “model” blended learning program. What characteristics make it great or successful? What would you see, hear…?

Q3: What are the risks in rolling out a blended learning initiative?

Q4: What metrics are available to help you determine the success of a blended learning program?

Q5: How do you identify that “blended learning” is the cause of success that you see and not some other factor?

Q6: How do data collection and analysis drive classroom instruction in a blended environment?

Q7: What tips do you have for teachers when trying to make effective and efficient decisions using student data?

Q8: What do administrators need to know or understand when evaluating a blended lesson or classroom?
