Mastery Charter School: Student Independence Through Blended Learning

Mastery Charter Schools sought to address a key problem in their district: “How might we build a blended learning model that fosters achievement and independence in our high school students?”

The team decided on a solution that would focus on supporting students to effectively engage in a blended model, especially given the amount of independence required in such a model. Rather than starting from scratch, Mastery decided to base its work in the ISTE Standards for Students, which “are designed to empower student voice and ensure that learning is a student-driven process.” Mastery decided to focus on one ISTE standard to start and to equip teachers to embed the standard into a unit.

This solution supports equity because it leverages a proven framework (ISTE) that emphasizes empowering student voice through technology as a path to ensuring each student reaches his or her potential. This solution supports resiliency because the ISTE standards can be used across grade levels and subject areas; it also supports resiliency by starting small (i.e., with one standard) so as to allow the network to learn and adapt as it goes.
