Blended learning activities have been around for decades. Although, in the past, these student learning activities usually took place inside a school classroom when technology tools were available. However, since the challenges of COVID-19 presented themselves about a year ago, blended learning is now a function of teaching and learning in not only face-to-face classrooms, but also in remote and hybrid learning situations.
When done well, blended learning combines the best of both traditional and digital teaching which results in more engaging learning experiences. Digital tools, if used appropriately, can allow for more personalized instruction as well as open up new opportunities for collaboration, communication and project-based learning. But the effective implementation of blended learning does not happen automatically.
In this edWebinar, three stellar superintendents share the leadership strategies they have employed to get the most out of blended learning for their students, teachers and administrators. The technical project director for Digital Promise and the Verizon Innovative Learning Schools (#VILs) Program will also join in the conversation. Examples of effective blended learning activities will be shared along with resources to assist others in leading and implementing successful blended learning environments.
This edWebinar will be of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
