On July 28, 2016 Future Ready Schools (FRS) hosted a webinar as part of the FRS Leadership Hub, a one-stop-shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders. This Google Hangout shared the latest action-oriented recommendations and resources from The Learning Accelerator (TLA) to help schools successfully implement blended learning.

Over the last three years, TLA has worked to understand the challenges educators face in implementing blended and personalized learning at scale. TLA partner Kira Keane provided an overview of these critical issues and highlight the free tools available to overcome these challenges. As a bonus, TLA partner Saro Mohammed shared her recent work to help us understand if, how, and when blended learning is effective. This webinar focused on practical steps district leaders can take to transform teaching and learning in their schools.

This webinar

  • defined blended learning as the integration of in-person learning with technology to enable the use of real-time data, personalization, and competency-based progression;
  • shared solutions to the seven top barriers to implementing blended learning;
  • offered an historical body of evidence supporting the effectiveness of personalized learning and learning for mastery, both of which blended learning can enable at scale; and
  • introduced a five-step guide for districts to develop a blended learning measurement system of their own.

Panelists addressed questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
