This roadmap was designed to provide guidance to NYCDOE school administrators in implementing blended learning programs in their own schools. Over the 2012-13 school year, iNACOL worked with 8 NYCDOE Lab Schools, each with its own blended learning model, to create this roadmap to improve blended learning implementation.

This roadmap has the following goals:

  • Provide an overview of current blended learning models.
  • Provide an understanding of iLearnNYC program and its support system.
  • Identify and define 6 elements of a successful blended learning program.
  • Identify essential questions administrators should consider.
  • Share promising practices.
  • Provide case studies.
  • Share resources: rubrics, timelines, and continuums.
