Six DC public charter school teachers have joined six teachers from the DC Public Schools system as the first class of CityBridge Foundation and NewSchools Venture Fund Education Innovation Fellows.
The two foundations established the Education Innovation Fellowship after extensive research on the potential for blended learning to improve DC public education. The program aims to capture the blended learning happening nationwide as professional development, and to establish a new set of pilot projects that would provide additional proof-points for what blended learning can do to harness technology and actionable data to drive new learning gains in the Washington, DC.
Here is the inaugural class of charter school Education Innovation Fellows, selected from a competitive field of applicants:
Kylie Alsofrom, DC Prep PCS - Edgewood Elementary
Shane Donovan, E.L. Haynes PCS
Rabiah Harris, E.L. Haynes PCS
Rasheki M. Kuykendall-Walker, Roots PCS
Melissa Mauter, KIPP DC: Key Academy PCS
Kyle Morean, Thurgood Marshall Academy PCS
Through travel, discussion with expert practitioners and monthly sessions, Fellows will study exemplary blended learning models from around the country. The yearlong fellowship program will culminate with an Education Innovation Summit on December 9.
