Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The participants will be able to generate a year-long strategic plan using the Three Phase of Blended Learning to launch a roll-out plan for the suburban, urban, or rural school district.
The participants will be able to connect with other blended learning educators that have moved educators to Phase Two, and Phase Three of the blended learning process where the teachers use the data differentiate the mini-lessons, independent practice, and future-ready skills for each student.
The participants will be able to analyze test score data to determine if blended learning will work for their school work.

Technology: The participants will learn about how to use discussion boards in Mobilize, interactive slides through PearDeck, vision boards in Padlet, and how to implement data-driven applications into the blended learning classroom.

Models Used: The Three Phases of Blended Learning guide by Marcia Kish. The resources and ideas come from Disrupting Education by Michael Horn.

Lesson Plan: PearDeck will be used to engage the participants during the whole group sessions. At the end of the session, the participants will get a copy of the slides sent to their Google Drive. Padlet will be used for the participants that don’t have Google accounts and for those that would like to have extra resources and links that align with the blended learning deployment plan. Mobilize will be used to continue the conversation and learning opportunities after the session has ended.

Evidence of Success: Success will be showcased as the participants answer a quick exit ticket through PearDeck as they leave the session. The question will focus on the critical elements of a blended learning classroom and the starting points.


Ten minute: A welcome and overview of the workshop will be delivered to the participants using PearDeck as part of the interactive opening.
Fifteen minute: Interactive explanation of the Three Phases of Blended learning. The participants will log onto a interactive PearDeck slide show. At the end of the slide show, all of the data and slides will be emailed to the participants to use after the session is completed.
Fifty minutes: Participants will move around the room to learn more about the Three Phases of Blended Learning in a small group instruction, online articles about the Three Phases of Blended Learning, watch an talk about the deployment process with other participants and guest educators, and brainstorm with other educators on how to implement differneated actives into the classroom setting. pick a learning path that best fits their learning objectives.
Ten minutes: Whole group overview of deployment plan and roadblocks that might occur during the first year of Blended Learning
