Blendedschools.net (BSN) will be featured in our next Innovators in Online Learning webinar for their adoption of BSN Cloud, the first independent, branded CONNECT repository. The webinar will demonstrate how this implementation contributes to BSN’s goal of increasing access to high-quality learning objects and encouraging blended learning.
I had the opportunity to talk with Deanna Mayers, the Curriculum Coordinator at blendedschools.net, to learn more about the company and their plans to create an OER repository for K-12 learning objects. Continue reading for an overview of BSN, and then sign up for the webinar to learn more about the implementation!
Blendedschools.net (BSN) is a non-profit organization that offers technology, instruction, and professional development to help educators easily build and incorporate online and blended learning programs in their classrooms. BSN is not a college or university. Furthermore, BSN does not offer individual course enrollments. BSN provides K-12 local educational authorities with the tools they need to help their teachers teach their students online and develop and provide meaningful experiences for their students that promote flexible, integrated learning.
Mark Gensimore, Project Manager of blendedschools.net, says, “The Wimba tools are used in so many different ways to complement so many different circumstances.” From five-year-olds studying online to adult learning events around the world, blendedschools.net courses are built in the Blackboard Academic SuiteTM with the Wimba Collaboration SuiteTM, allowing synchronous interaction through video, speech, and talk… At blendedschools.net, we believe that integration is the secret to success. Our learning management system’s integration with Blackboard Collaborate encourages adoption by reducing training time and technical support.
Blended schools network
GLOBE NEWSWIRE, July 23, 2014 — AUSTIN, Texas (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sibling Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:SIBE), (www.siblinggroup.com) (the “Business”), an educational technology holding company, announced today that its Blended Schools Network division has signed a national alliance with School Improvement Network to provide K-12 online instructional content as part of their Student-Centered Learning product development.
The School Improvement Network’s personalized learning (PL) model, which is now in use in urban public schools, has helped students of all backgrounds reach higher levels of achievement and participation. As students learn and provide proof of mastery of skills and proficiencies identified in the Common Core State Standards Initiative, PL drives customized educational experiences by enabling teachers to reach students at their current level of understanding and ideal learning style as they learn. The content will be provided through School Improvement Network’s new GAGE framework, which is a dynamic digital teaching and learning platform that supports personalized learning in any school or system. GAGE helps students develop a learning path that encourages them to succeed based on their individual mastery of learning goals. The content from the Blended School Network will be incorporated into the GAGE framework to help students master learning objectives.

Cynthia Hyland, MEd., sits down at her laptop in the William Penn School District’s Ninth Grade Academy building on a gray October morning in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, just across the border from the rough-and-tumble neighborhood of West Philadelphia. The students are noticeably absent from the classroom where she sits as she prepares to begin the homeroom session. Hyland, the William Penn School District Cyber Academy’s Distance Education Facilitator, will track and educate students who are all logging in from their homes during the day. While the majority of the student body shuffles into the district’s conventional brick and mortar structures, Hyland’s 27 students are engaging in one of the country’s most creative – and needed – distance education programs from their bedrooms, kitchens, and basement home offices. And, just two years after its launch, the Cyber Academy has already proved to be so popular that many students have been able to graduate when, before the program, their chances of finishing school were slim to none.
