As part of its American Education Week celebration, the Lebanon School District honored Kevin Dellicker, of Dellicker Strategies, headquartered in Kutztown, as a “Friend of Education” for the 2012-13 school year along with several other honorees.
Dellicker Strategies is the driving force behind the PA Hybrid Learning Initiative (PA HLI), of which the Lebanon School District is a member.
“I am honored and humbled that Lebanon School District selected me as a Friend of Education this year,” said Dellicker. “Hybrid learning improves student achievement by providing teachers with smaller, more manageable student group sizes to deliver personalized, focused instruction to students, and we are so excited to bring this opportunity to Lebanon School District.”
Fifteen schools across Pennsylvania are participating in the pilot PA HLI program for the 2012-13 school year. The PA HLI combines digital resources like laptops and the internet along with in-classroom teacher instruction for a more student-centered approach to learning.
At Lebanon High School 240 students elected to participate in hybrid learning classes this year for their core subjects – math, language arts, science, and social studies.
The PA HLI is an organized group of teachers, administrators and subject-matter experts seeking to create a more student-centered approach to learning. Its mission is to improve student achievement in Pennsylvania by providing teachers with smaller, more manageable student group sizes to deliver personalized, focused instruction to students using real-time data. In addition, the PA HLI hosts a password-protected social media site for teachers and administrators to collaborate online, sharing best practices for hybrid learning.
