BOSTON — May 20, 2015 — An increasing number of schools across the country are piloting or implementing blended learning programs. However, many educators are unfamiliar with the different aspects of this approach and how the various blended learning instructional models differ. In her recently released white paper, Elizabeth Brooke, Ph.D., vice president of education and research for Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST) company, reviews four critical factors for educators to keep in mind as their districts explore and implement blended learning for literacy instruction. Titled “Blended Learning: A Basic Overview of Typical Implementation Models and Four Keys to Success,” the white paper also clarifies the basic definition of blended learning and examines some of the most common implementation models being used.

Citing the Clayton Christensen Institute, one of the most well-known thought leaders on blended learning, Dr. Brooke goes on to explain several important factors that can help teachers and administrators shift classroom instruction from traditional models to the more contemporary blended learning approach. Empowering teachers with the best techniques and technology for creating great, student-centric instruction, Dr. Brooke also lists ways to successfully accelerate the benefits of blended learning implementation models, including:

  • Selecting a technology tool that adapts to each student’s abilities
  • Using instructional programs that capture student data
  • Choosing personalized learning technologies that provide recommendations for teacher interventions
  • Selecting appropriate instructional resources that help the teacher to connect performance data to instructional strategies 

“When blended learning incorporates adaptive technology, real-time progress monitoring and provides the recommended next steps for the teachers to customize instruction for each student, the result is powerful,” said Dr. Brooke. “That successful combination is the key to helping teachers become more targeted, time efficient and effective in improving students’ overall ability in reading and other core subjects.”
