1 A District-Wide Blended Learning Environment Using a Combination of Technology and Print

2 The way we define, organize and provide educational services must change to meet the needs of students in the times in which we live.

3 We live in an age of exponential change in which knowledge is created and obsolete at an accelerating pace.

4  Safety  Differentiation  Assessments  Student Engagement  Web-based  Efficient  24/7 Connection and Communication  Mobile  Global Integration  College/Career Ready  Easy Accessibility  Universal Design  Learning Management Systems  Current Events  Life Skills  Immediate Feedback  Student-based

5 21 st Century Technology Establish 21 st Century Classroom K-12 Online Learning and e-Books/Textbooks Online Dual Credit BYOT—Bring Your Own Technology Grades 6-8: In place currently Grades 9-12: To be added 2014-15

6  98% middle/high students own a digital device.  27% of students say their laptop is their most important tool in the backpack.  38% of students say they can’t go 10 minutes without using a digital device.  75% of students say they would not be able to study without technology.  46% of students say they are more likely to do their homework if it is on their digital device.  80% of students use digital devices to write or research for class homework.

8 Today we must provide students with exceptional learning experiences that prepare them for life and career in a world of exponential change. We must engage their interest, gain access to their time, and make our time more effective. How and why?

9  Heavy textbooks to bring home in backpack  “I forgot to bring my book home.” “I left my homework at home.”  Days to grade 175+ assignments  All students doing same homework assignments  Arranging a place to meet for group projects  Time spent locating text, looking up vocabulary  Driving to another campus to learn  Mobil learning anywhere  Cloud access  Digital formative assessment & Instant feedback  Customizable homework & Differentiation  Shared documents with classmates without leaving home  Instant vocabulary accessibility College classes while in the HS Communication with teachers 24/7 through web access

10 10 StandardAligned Test ItemsStandard Description LA.5.L.39.b 4 Use a comma to separate an introductory element from the rest of the sentence. LA.5.L.39.c 6 Use a comma to set off the words yes and no (e.g., Yes, thank you), to set off a tag question from the rest of the sentence (e.g., it’s true, isn’t it?), and to indicate direct address (e.g., Is that you, Steve?). LA.5.L.39.d 1 Use underlining, quotation marks, or italics to indicate titles of works. LA.5.L.39.e 2, 3, 5, 7 Spell grade-appropriate words correctly, consulting references as needed. LA.5.L.41.a 9, 10, 11, 19, 20, 21, 22 Use context (e.g., cause/effect relationships and comparisons in text) as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase. LA.5.L.41.b 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 Use common, grade-appropriate Greek and Latin affixes and roots as clues to the meaning of a word (e.g., photograph, photosynthesis). LA.5.RI.10 28, 29, 30, 31 Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

13 1:1 Technology Connectivity & Management Content & Change of Practice Pearson - Digital Curriculum Embedded Professional Development Project Management Wireless Infrastructure Increased Bandwidth BYOT & 1200 Chromebooks To Place Our Students in a Networked Learning Environment, We Began by Selecting Content First, then Network and 1-to-1 Technology to Deliver this Content

14 While change can be difficult, properly preparing all stakeholders through providing good communication, training, and support are the key to our successful implementation  Students ◦ BYOT/District vision for a preferred future in the digital age, etc.  Parents ◦ District website, Face to face meetings, etc.  Staff ◦ Digital Academy/Professional Development, etc.

15 This cost savings will allow our district to reallocate funds for greater accessibility, speed, and filtering of information through a more comprehensive network for learning.
