In it Together: Blended Classrooms and Communities - SXSWedu 2013 by SXSW EDU published on 2013-03-07T14:43:39Z In a traditional classroom, a teacher is expected to provide instruction that meets the needs of all students, a difficult task where the default option is teaching to the middle. In a blended classroom, the paradigm shifts, and teachers use data to differentiate instruction and meet the needs of individual students, enabling students to go at their own pace. We believe you can take blended learning further and develop blended communities. Students have access to learning anytime, anywhere, with anyone. Data is a driver of what resources a student receives. Each student has a team of adults that is focused on his learning and his goals. Each team member has student data and personalized digital content. Education Elements, Knowledgeworks, and Reynoldsburg City Schools are working on a blueprint for a system of schools where this can take place. Our interactive discussion will focus on our goals, our design challenges, and our expectations of how this will unfold.
