On Thursday, December 1, 2016 Future Ready Schools® (FRS) held a webinar as part of its Leadership Hub, a one-stop-shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders.

While technology is nearly commonplace in K–12 classrooms, many educators are often left wondering how best to use it to improve teaching and learning. The Learning Accelerator (TLA) has spent the past year researching, capturing, and sharing more than 150 high-quality blended and personalized learning strategies to illustrate how technology can best be used to improve instruction.

This webinar highlighted how TLA thinks technology can be used to benefit every student in America and offered specific classroom examples of where technology is accelerating student learning. Panelists provided unique insights into these practices, including how they evolved from an idea to an instructional strategy, as well as the conditions and supports that make them possible.

Panelists solicited questions and feedback from the audience in order to provide a more engaging experience.  Also they provided resources that would allow audience members to deepen their learning about blended and personalized learning practices.

Please direct questions concerning the webinar to If you are unable to watch the webinar live, an archived version will be available in “Resources” of the FRS Dashboard after the event airs.

Future Ready Schools® is a collaboration between the US Department of Education and the Alliance for Excellent Education, a Washington, DC–based national policy and advocacy organization dedicated to ensuring that all students, particularly those traditionally underserved, graduate from high school ready for success in college, work, and citizenship.
