Transitioning to a Blended Learning Environment

1:1 Learning - Leading Change

March 2014
Dr. John Jungmann
Where did we start?
(5 years ago)
Desktop computers
Hard-wired Internet connectivity
Volunteer professional development by outside providers
District-developed systems (website, SIS, curriculum, etc . . .)
Labs in all buildings, but limited instructional usage
Where are we now?
(Monett and Liberty)
Monett in 2012 -2013
Laptop computers for all faculty and projectors in all classrooms (Smartboard in some)
Additional technology tools - FLIP cameras, ELMOs, clicker systems
Upgraded switches and increased bandwidth
Wireless networking at all campuses (density for 1:1 implementation)
1:1 with MacAirs in 9-12
2:1 iPads in every K-4 classroom
eMints for all Communication Arts 5th-8th and additional 1:1 mobile labs and iPad sets
Required technology PD for all faculty
Commercial grade systems (website, SIS, curr., etc. . .)
Your Vision?
Prepare students for 21st century careers
Increase student achievement and engagement
Level the "playing field" regardless of family economics
Communicate and collaborate with a global audience
24/7 customized learning opportunities for all students (use space and time differently)
Create a financially sustainable education system

Enough technology to meet the needs of students (limited labs)
1:1 technology implementation 6th-12th grades
1:1 or 2:1 technology implementation K-5th
Blended learning course offerings at all levels
Fully on-line and blended professional development opportunities for all
Use of students to grow and support our staff
Break down silo mentality in education and partner with other districts to serve our students and faculty collectively

Review of research - 2009-2011

Transitioning Our Faculty and Leadership

eMints 1:1 labs for CA 2008-2011
Laptops and projectors for all faculty 2009 and 2010
Required PD (2 years) 2009-2011
Increased walk-throughs with tech. indicators 2009-2011
Monthly administrative tech. training 2009-2012
Classroom websites for all - upgraded website

Learning walks - 2012
Technology integration specialist hired - 2009
Transitioned from training sessions to job-embedded PD
Blended learning coaches (Liberty)
eLEADS specialists - (peer mentor model)
Machines and Software - $1,000 per machine ($1.43 per instructional day) - less than 1% of my operation budget in Liberty
Additional classified or reassign (help desk)
Professional development
Infrastructure upgrades
Insurance (student)
The Process
The Investment
How did we pay for it?
Find inefficiencies - 3 departments reduced $400,000 annually in Monett

Adjust class size and/or master schedule

Reduce paper use and textbook purchase

Must make trade-offs (If this is what we believe - how will we make spending changes to make it happen?)

Creates facility and operational efficiencies by reducing need for additional square footage
“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he
has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
-Andre Gide
“Your life does not get better by chance,
it gets better by change.” –Jim Rohn

“A year from now you will wish you had started today.” -Karen Lamb
The Preparation
Our Backchannel

Please post questions here


Where was your system 5 years ago
in the area of technology integration
in the classroom?

instruction - hardware - software
PD - infrastructure

Where is your system today in the
area of technology integration
in the classroom?

instruction - hardware - software
PD -infrastructure
What is your vision for technolgy
integration for the future?
(instruction, hardware, software, PD, infrastructure)
What other processes would you need to
implement to reach your vision of
technology integration?
What preparations would you need to
make to achieve your vision of
technology integration?
What investments would you need to
make in order to implement your
vision of technology integration?
Where can you find resources that would
help you implement your vision of
technology integration?
Critical Components for Success

Leaders with vision, passion, and are comfortable with change.

A partner for implementation (Not a Product - I recommend Apple - We have a team of support - Jon, Deb, Brett, Matt, and Barry)

IT people who support the vision and are willing to give up control and power (Yes not No)

Must be locally driven and supported - Do not expect or rely on state or federal government for support (financial, PD, vision, etc . . .)
The Celebration
What the teachers
and students say . . .

Feedback from
Monett and Liberty
Final Thoughts

"You can afford to do anything you want to do, you cannot afford to do everything you want to do. It is a question of priorities."

"If this is what our students need to experience, how will we change our spending habits to make it happen?"

"We decided this was something we
could not afford not to do."
This is about transforming the learning experience,

If you do not transform the learning
experience with technology
it will be a waste of your
time and resources.
Feedback, Questions, Conversations

My Journey
Monett Schools (10 years) - rural community
2200 students
6 buildings
60% free and reduced
25% English language learners
Growth of 1% per year
Stable economy - industrial base for region
My Journey - Continued
Liberty Public Schools (2 years) - Suburban Community
11,500 students
18 school sites
20% free and reduced
Low diversity
Growth of 3-5% annually projected for next decade
Low assessed valuation per child - small industrial base - community is made up of rooftops and retail

1-to-1 schools that properly implement technology outperform all other schools, including all other 1-to-1 schools.
A school principal's ability to lead is critical to the success of an implementation effort.
Technology-transformed intervention improves learning.
On-line collaboration increases learning productivity and student engagement.
Daily use of technology delivers the best return on investment (ROI).
