Five Key Levers
Our work focuses on five key levers for transforming education with quality, equity, and scale:
|We capture and share specific teaching and learning practices that involve each component of blended learning: in-person instruction, technology, real-time data, personalization, and mastery-based progression.|
|We provide resources and recommendations for leaders at multiple levels to tackle barriers to blended learning and establish the conditions for success and scale.|
|We work to build the capacity of educators and leaders to enact practices and conditions of high-quality blended learning. Our approach to building human capital aligns to what all learning - adult and student - should be: data rich, personalized, and mastery-based.|
|We focus on measurement; understanding the effectiveness of blended learning to inform implementation and improvement. We work to clarify terminology and measures, build an evidence base, and help connect agendas for the field.|
|We design for equity; identifying how blended learning increases outcomes and opportunities for all students – regardless of income, race, gender, or language. We engage diverse communities in our work, creating opportunities for underrepresented leaders and educators.|
As an organization working to catalyze the transformation of American K-12 education through blended learning on a national scale, TLA continually surveys and explores the education ecosystem. This exploration helps TLA understand the barriers which prevent blended and personalized learning from reaching scale and to develop potential solutions. Learn more about TLA's Impact Stories.
