It’s Not Just About the Model: Blended Learning, Innovation, and Year 2 at Summit Public Schools

In 2012, FSG and the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation published five case studies on leading blended learning practitioners across the country (Blended Learning in Practice: Case Studies from Leading Schools). A key question that emerged from this work was how schools can manage the rapid pace of change inherent in blended learning. This case study, a Year 2 follow up in the 2012-13 school year, examines how a rigorous, intentional process for innovation has enabled Summit Public Schools San Jose to continuously improve its blended and whole school learning model.
