The Alliance for Excellent Education held the third in its series of webinars for Project 24. This webinar provided an introduction to one of the gears in the Project 24 framework: use of time.
The Alliance for Excellent Education held a webinar on May 24 featuring educators who have seen technology change the use of time in teaching. Jon Bergmann from the Joseph Sears school explained how a “flipped classroom” is making a difference for student learning. Leslie Fetzer, the 2012 SREB/iNACOL National Online Teacher of the Year, provided insight on being an online teacher and how her job has become one that keeps her busy 24/7. Participants also heard about how many afterschool programs are turning to technology to increase student engagement and outcomes, and heard about one school that is seeing unexpected results. The webinar addressed a wide range of ways that time can be examined differently and how digital tools can facilitate that process. Panelists also addressed questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
