What is blended learning? The SVVSD Blended model is a combination between research-supported practices and quality online content. Blended learning puts the students at the center by giving them more control of the content, path, place, pace, and time of learning. Key components include online formative assessment, high-quality instructional content, differentiated small group instruction/station rotation, and transformative class time.
What is a Blended Digital Credential? SVVSD is partnering with iLearn Collaborative to provide an opportunity for teachers to learn about and earn PD badges in six different key components of Blended Learning. When the six badges are issued, the earner receives a digital credential that can provide several benefits. The iLearn Collaborative’s Blended Learning certificate is a credential recognizing achievement and qualifications for implementation of instructional practices that promote student agency. Through our comprehensive, six-course training program, educators demonstrate mastery of innovative blended and personalized learning strategies and methods through modeling and reflective practice. Credentialed educators are deemed instructional leaders within their schools and districts for their contributions to the advancement of student-centered learning.
What is a Badge? A badge is a portable, connected and verifiable credential presented in a visual format. Badges can be earned in various spaces, on the time frame of the learner, for all types of learning. The value of badges can range from recognition of leadership in the content learned, open new pathways. SVVSD will support badges that allow for the development of district initiatives, but badges can be earned for any number of things in which a person might be interested.
