Purpose: The purpose of this poster session is to share the process used within our district and successes/challenges encountered while implementing blended learning at the middle school level when models already existed at the elementary and high school level.
Objectives - Participants will be able to:
-identify the blended learning models (station rotation - elementary, enriched virtual - high school, and educator-created versions between the more structured environment and the more open environment) being used within the district
-discuss the variances of blended learning (Phase 2 options by Marcia Kish) used at the middle school level
-explore resources used in the middle school blended learning classes
-ask questions about implementation, successes/challenges, professional learning, and technology practices, coaching, and more
