Examples of success in blended learning: survey deadline extended

We have received a strong response to our call for examples of blended learning success. We have also heard from quite a few schools requesting more time, so we have extended the deadline to the end of the day (midnight PT) on October 26. The survey is available at http://ow.ly/Cldag. Most surveys are taking between 15 and 20 minutes to complete.

As we explained in our previous blog post:

We 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. We 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, we 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.

We 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. We will invite the schools that are selected to be featured in the case studies to co-present with us at the November 2015 iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium. Evergreen and Christensen will pay a portion of expenses to defer travel costs.
