Progressive Learning Center
Emergency remote learning due to COVID-19 has undoubtedly increased student autonomy, teacher innovation, and technology integration. With these changes, it is inevitable that progressive learning center styles like flipped learning, STEM, personalized learning, and project-based learning will prevail in whatever learning environment schools determine safe and effective. Although these chosen progressive learning center styles may vary, each of these learning styles requires the use of devices and technology in order to be effective.
We’ve spent countless hours having conversations with technology leaders throughout K-12 about these progressive learning styles, how technology enhances implementation, and how to maximize progressive learning moving forward. From these conversations, we’ve put together comprehensive resources in this progressive learning center to help you maximize instruction throughout your blended learning initiative.

The flipped classroom (or flipped learning) model is an instructional strategy that uses blended learning to reverse where lecture and learning take place. This strategy enables students to access content more flexibly, increasing engagement and active learning, and gives teachers the opportunity to better assist, engage, and differentiate learning for students during class time.

Personalized learning is all about one thing: transforming classroom instruction by tailoring tasks, instruction, and assessment to meet each student’s needs and abilities. Students learn on different levels and in different ways, however, all students must successfully reach a mastery level of the subject matter by the end of the year. The learning process is no longer linear and “one-size-fits-all.” To account for this, teachers must begin to think about how to incorporate personalized learning into their instruction.
