Featured Case Studies

Schools working with Learning Innovation Catalyst (LINC) are doing exciting work, revamping PLCs, increasing blended learning, and supporting teacher innovation! Our case studies showcase just a few ways in which our partner schools are using LINC’s coaching, workshops, and LINCspring to increase 21st-century learning skills and generativity among teachers and students.

Waterside Children's School Case Study

Waterside Case Study

Principal Dana Geredasi founded her elementary school with an intensive design for hands-on STEAM education. And while she hired teachers who were very comfortable with technology, their range of blended learning skills were limited.  To get teachers using blended learning more than 75% of the time, she needed to help teachers get past the fear of failure and to promote classroom innovation.  Learn how Principal Gerendasi engaged LINC to help her achieve her vision in this case study on Waterside Children’s Studio School.

Fort Hill Case Study

Principal Jennifer Gonzalez-Funes was frustrated when she saw classroom technology being used as a reward for students who got their work done early and not a core part of student learning. By implementing LINCspring’s online learning cycles as the cornerstone of weekly professional learning communities(PLCs), she has been able to encourage teacher innovation, creativity, and agency. Now students are learning actively through station rotation and other blended learning strategies and taking more responsibility for their own learning.  Learn how Fort Hill is using teacher-led transformation teams and PLCs to increase engagement and excitement among students.

Marymount Case Study

Dr. Anabella Martinez, School Director for Marymount School Baranquilla (Colombia, SA), is focused on developing teacher mindset around classroom innovation, promoting self-directed and self-regulated learning for all students. Using LINC’s PAACC model (personalization, agency, authentic audience, connectivity, and creativity), teachers are working together to create a culture of generativity among themselves and students.  Focusing their work on three key models, project-based learning, connection-based learning, and service learning, students are creating and leading impressive projects and experiencing deeper learning. Discover how LINC is supporting the principal’s goals to build 21st-century learning skills in this impressive South American school.
