This Sunday night at 8pm join Highlander Institute for a discussion on the best practices and persistent challenges facing teachers, building leaders and district leaders when it comes to the implementation of blended learning.
More and more RI educators are turning to blended learning to help them personalize instruction for students, but the shift is not an easy one. Whether you're using blended learning to differentiate instruction, manage project-based learning, or allow students to move at their own pace, success is challenging and few are doing it really well across an entire classroom, school or district.
This conversation is a kick-off to this spring when Highlander Institute and Christensen Institute will be bring the best blended learning implementers at the classroom, building and district level to Providence and give them the stage to share what they're doing well so we all can learn from their success.
Tune in to #EdChatRI Sunday night to share ideas, but then be sure to grab your early-bird ticket for the 5th Annual Blended and Personalized Learning Conference before Monday, 2/1 to save $20 on the registration fee.
In a recent Providence Journal (@projo) article written by Linda Borg (@lborgprojocom) RI Commissioner of Education, Ken Wagner spoke about bold changes and innovation that needs to take place in education in the state of Rhode Island. http://providencejournal.com/article/20160107/NEWS/160109474
For the past few years Rhode Island has been at the forefront of edtech and innovation, thanks in large part to the Highlander Institute (@HighlanderInst) and the many innovative educational leaders, both teachers and administrators that our state has leading the work. There are however more changes and improvements that need to take place to push us further and help our students become better prepared for their future.
Join us Sunday night at 8 pm as we take a close look at what we are doing well and what other things we could be doing to help us advance the very important work we all do. Help us take a look at what we can do to "Develop a Culture of Innovation" in our state in the field of education.
Teachers are doing amazing work in their classrooms. Many of these teachers have a desire to share, lead, and extend their influence beyond the classroom. They do not want to move into the role of administrator as they love working with their students; however, they are looking for more responsibility within the teaching profession. The role of teacher leaders can be effective as schools look to progress. It makes sense that teachers want to learn from other teachers and some administrators are identifying strong teacher leaders to help them move schools forward.
Join @AGrundel Sunday night at 8 pm as she guest moderates the first #EdChatRI of the new year.
