Free Guidebook - From Goals to Gains: The Blended Learning Math Journey

This guidebook discusses five key components of an effective Blended Learning framework to help guide your journey at every step of the way.  

Effective Blended Learning frameworks are those in which the school community is engaged to:
  • Plan by defining desired outcomes and creating goals
  • Implement programming
  • Measure impact, share best practices, and make commitments
  • Adjust via a continuous improvement cycle
  • Celebrate successes along the way
In the introdution to From Goals to Gains: The Blended Learning Math Journey writes DreamBox Learning, Inc., in partnership with Getting Smart, "The journey to mathematics proficiency can be a challenge for many learners. The Educational Testing Service’s 2015 global report, America’s Skills Challenge: Millennials and the Future, (PDF) found that the 16- to 24-year-olds who will be part of the U.S. labor force for the next 50 years ranked last in numeracy against their peers in 22 other countries. These rankings weren’t just a question of economic disadvantage; in the same study, even U.S. millennials with graduate degrees scored near the bottom in numeracy."

There is great interest in creating digital learning opportunities for math students. It stems from the historical challenge to engage students in a deeper conceptual understanding of math content, as well as the capability to digitally represent ideas and concepts. In addition, digital programs that are adaptive allow students to work on a customized path that narrows gaps while also pushing the individual student to new levels of understanding.

Throughout this guidebook, we’ll cover ways to plan, implement, measure, and adjust your own Blended Learning roadmap to student success. You’ll also find tips for administrators and coaches to empower teachers on their own Blended Learning journeys—and a reminder to celebrate the successes you achieve along the way!
