The Evergreen Education Group and Christensen Institute are launching a project to find and publicize examples of success in blended learning.
They believe that proof points will help practitioners who need to demonstrate to a variety of stakeholders that blended learning can be successful in a setting that the stakeholders are familiar with. They intend therefore to publish case studies that collectively will cover a variety of elements including different geographic areas, school/district sizes, and urban/suburban/rural characteristics.
Specifically, they are seeking:
- Examples from regular traditional public schools and districts, not including specialized schools or charter schools.
- Blended learning implementations that can demonstrate improvements in outcomes based on student achievement as determined by assessments, course grades or other measures.
- A range of implementation types, geographic areas, student populations, grade levels and subject areas.
They will review all submissions, and through evaluations of the survey responses and follow-up interviews, determine the best examples that represent an assortment of blended learning successes. Case studies will be developed based on these examples.
They will invite the schools that are selected to be featured in the case studies to co-present at the November 2015 iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium. Evergreen and Christensen will pay a portion of expenses to defer travel costs.
The survey is short and will take no more than about 10-15 minutes. If your program fits what they are seeking they look forward to hearing from you! The survey will remain open through Sunday, Oct. 19.
