Blended Model Type: Station Rotation and Individual Rotation

Students work through playlists, which often include small group rotation options


Cisco primarily uses a mix of station rotation and individual rotation models for blended learning. The station rotation is highly prominent, in which “students experience the Rotation model within a contained classroom or group of classrooms…[rotating] on a fixed schedule or at the teacher’s discretion between learning modalities, at least one of which is online learning” (Christensen Institute). Students are also given playlists, outlining what they must do and what additional choices they have, they also have choice in the order in which they complete those assignments. This approach aligns with Christensen’s definition of individual rotation, where a “student has an individualized playlist and does not necessarily rotate to each available station or modality” (Christensen Institute).
