Blended learning is an innovation with the potential to transform the education of millions of students in American K-12 schools. By using technology to help teachers and students more deeply understand and respond to individual needs, schools can better reach their goals: effective, equitable, and engaging learning for every student.

The Learning Accelerator has explored hundreds of schools and systems across the country to identify best instructional and operational practices for implementing blended and personalized learning. We have and will continue to codify what we learn - both larger observations and patterns as well as specific school practices - in the strategy cards below. Our goal is to help educators discover and share specific teaching and learning practices and explore real-world strategies to apply to their own practices today.
