During the 2012 California eLearning Census, we were not surprised to find that the predominant blended learning model was the Self Blend (now renamed A la Carte). After all, eLearning was just reaching the tipping point and a significant number of eLearners were disruptors, those students whose needs weren’t being met by traditional schools.
In 2013, though, we’re finding that districts and direct-funded charters are becoming more comfortable with online and blended learning. Numbers of involved students have grown within each district and 34% were utilizing more than one blended model. When we disaggregated the data, we found significant differences between how elementary (k-8) and unified (K-12 and 9-12) districts were blending. Some of this data is listed below. The complete California eLearning Census Report may be found here.
