On February 22, All4Ed and Future Ready Schools® held the the seventh annual Digital Learning Day (DLDay), a nationwide celebration created by the All4Ed that highlights great teaching and demonstrates how technology can improve student outcomes.
During this webinar, All4Ed spotlighted DLDay events happening live around the country and released a new report, Blending Teaching and Technology: Simple Strategies for Improved Student Learning. The report offers a collection of strategies aligned to the Future Ready Schools® framework that school district leaders can use to implement an instructional approach supported by blended learning.
The webinar and the report also highlighted how Lindsay Unified School District in California uses blended learning to support its performance-based system of progression, in which students move through instructional content at their own pace, advancing only once they have mastered all the standards from the previous content level.
