This post is specific to my current doctoral program in Instructional Systems Technology at Indiana University. It will act as a reflection over the recent workshop I attended from IU’s GradGrants Center. The workshop focused not only on offering basic tips and strategies for writing grants, but also as an introduction to the services that the GradGrants Center offers students at Indiana University.

FuelEd’s new adaptive curriculum features rich multi-media and motivational learning objects
Herndon, Virginia, April 20, 2017 — A student’s ninth-grade “status” is the best indicator of whether or not he or she will graduate.

To help engage and motivate students who need help staying on track for graduation, Fuel Education (FuelEd) is launching a new, credit recovery curriculum for blended and online learning available this fall.

Flypost was created by college students to help schools stay connected. Students, faculty, and staff can post events and announcements, which can be viewed on the mobile apps, over the web, or on the TV screen applications, making it much easier to find out about what’s going on. The goal is to boost students’ engagement with their institution and thereby give them the best educational experience possible.
Flypost lets users express their creativity by showing off their poster designs digitally and encouraging attendance at the great events hosted by students and faculty everyday. Sustainability was a key motivation for the development of the platform, and the team seeks to get away from paper signage for advertising on campuses.

Blended learning has become a bit of a buzzword over the past decade, but as an instructional approach, blended learning has a lot to offer in the K-12 environment. While no common definition for blended learning exists, the basic idea is to combine online, digital learning materials with traditional face-to-face classroom approaches. In practice, this covers a wide range of implementations, some of which can be more beneficial than others.
This post will focus on some of the specific apps and strategies that can be helpful when implementing blended learning in K-12 classrooms.
