Blended learning combines, or blends, traditional face-to-face instruction with digital, online learning.
The resources and tools below can help school teams design and implement a blended approach in their communities. You will find overview resources that describe blended learning, implementation tools and checklists, as well as brief and extended virtual “school tours” of what blended learning experiences look like in action in settings across the country.
Blended Learning Primer
A synthesis of research on the benefits of blended learning and what various blended approaches can look like, as well as links to additional resources.
Blended Learning Overview
This set of slides presents the various components that make up three specific blended learning approaches—station rotation, individual rotation, and flex.
Design and Implementation Guides
The resources below are intended to support school-level planning and implementation for three blended learning approaches. Each resource includes a description of the way students are learning in each approach, a checklist that shows a progression toward more personalization and self-direction within that approach, and considerations for the supporting resources and structures in a school or system.
Station Rotation Model Summary
Details on the station rotation approach to blended learning, including the actions of teachers and students and the supporting resources needed.
Individual Rotation Model Summary
Details on the individual rotation approach to blended learning, including the actions of teachers and students and the supporting resources needed.
Flex Model Summary
Details on the flex approach to blended learning, including the actions of teachers and students and the supporting resources needed.
The curation of these resources was inspired and made possible by every school we spotlight as well as Dallas ISD’s Personalized Learning Toolbox.
The set of seven virtual “school tours” linked on the map below provide a close look at how these schools and districts are implementing blended learning experiences across a range of grades and content areas. You can also get a brief preview of these schools and districts through our abbreviated 10-minute tours.
Transcend created these resources to use in partnerships with Texas Education Agency (TEA) and school communities across the state of Texas as they worked to redesign the student experience through blended learning.
