About The Webinar
How can we respond to this changing world our students are entering? By creating supportive classroom environments with Blended Learning.
Blended learning has become an essential component of every innovative school district: it prepares our students for the future, enables new ways to personalize learning by opening the walls of the classroom, and it strengthens data-driven teaching and assessment.

So, how are these school districts building effective blended learning programs?
We’ve asked our experts to help with practical insights and advice. In this webinar, our panel will discuss:

  • technology-enabled learning
  • the importance of connecting pedagogy
  • and practice with technology.

On Oct 27th, at 1 pm PST, we’re hosting an expert panel discussion on how to leverage Blended Learning best practices for successful adoption.
