Summary: The Philadelphia Education Research Consortium--or PERC--was launched in August 2014 as an innovative partnership designed to provide research and analyses on some of the city's most pressing education issues. This partnership was forged among the School District of Philadelphia, Philadelphia's charter school sector, and Research for Action (RFA). PERC draws on the rich research expertise in Philadelphia--both within RFA and from three of the city's major research universities--to conduct research that meets the information needs identified by representatives of Philadelphia's public schools. Building on their initial study of blended learning definitions, empirical evidence, and conditions for implementation success, this Research Brief examines educators' on-the-ground perspectives about blended learning implementation. In their two-pronged study approach, the authors: (1) explore best practices in implementation at four sites: New York City's iZone schools; District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS); Lebanon, Pennsylvania School District; and E.L. Haynes Public Charter School in Washington, DC; and (2) present findings from a local survey of technology coordinators and teachers in the School District of Philadelphia and the city's charter partners regarding the capacity of schools to implement blended learning models and strategies. Three appendices are included: (1) Alignment of Philadelphia Needs, Best Practices, and Recommendations; (2) Technology Coordinator Survey Responses to Implementation Questions; and (3) Technology Coordinator Survey Responses.
