Statewide Blending Learning Initiative Takes Shape in Rhode Island

Rhode Island's Department of Education (RIDE) is partnering with non-profit The Learning Accelerator (TLA) to pursue statewide blended learning offerings in schools. RIDE announced the partnership last month and, upon implementation, it would position Rhode Island to be the first fully 'blended-learning state'. TLA will provide technical assistance based on its blended learning framework as well as $100,000 for the first year of the project. The project will begin with the development of a five-year strategic plan and a comprehensive communications plan.
