South Central Regional Consortuim
  • 1994 -The TIU consortium began with 4 school
    districts in Huntingdon, Fulton, Mifflin, and
    Juniata Counties and TIU 11.
  • 1995 -TIU 11 and the 7 districts became the South
    Central Regional Consortium (SCRC) of the
    Partners in Distance Learning (PDL).

2002--SCRC
  • 47 member school districts
  • Usesd
  • videoconferencing to
  • Connect classrooms
  • Virtual field trips
  • Deliver professional development
  • Bridged multiple site videoconferences

Videoconference is
  • Two-way interactive television
  • People at two or more sites can see and hear each
    other
  • Print documents, video and audio tapes, slides,
    transparencies and computer screens can be
    displayed to participants at far sites

7
Videoconference bridging
  • Connects multiple videoconference sites at one
    time
  • All participants can see and hear each other

8
SCRC has
  • Connected hundreds of classrooms so students
    could take classes otherwise not available to
    them, such as Latin and Calculus
  • Taken thousands of students on virtual field
    trips
  • Provided videoconference teacher training
  • Delivered professional development to thousands
    of teachers

9
SCRC became blendedschools.net on July 1, 2003
  • A network of 85 PA school districts that
    optimize technology to ensure all students have
    an opportunity to learn.
  • Received 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation status,
    November 2003.
  • Continues to facilitate the use of
    videoconferencing to connect learners with
    teachers.
  • Offers a wide variety of online courses.
  • Continues to seek technology solutions to
    increase learning.

If students become engaged in the right stuff,
they are likely to learn what we want them to
learn.Schlechty, Working on the Work, 2002
29
5 types of responses students might make to any
school task
  • Authentic engagementwork has clear meaning and
    immediate value to student
  • Ritual engagementwork has little or no inherent
    meaning or direct value to student
  • Passive compliancestudent is willing to work to
    avoid negative consequences
  • Retreatismstudent is not willing to do work
  • Rebellionstudent refuses to do work and disrupts
    others or attempts to substitute work in lieu of
    assignment
