In this session, Julia Freeland Fisher of the Clayton Christensen Institute will touch on the following:

  • Why relationships have become an important focus in education
  • What we’re missing when we as educators talk about mentorship and relationship building
  • How new technology-enabled mentorship models stand to disrupt the monopoly that neighborhoods hold on student networks, and radically expand students’ access to social capital

Our latest podcast episode, featuring John Watson of the Evergreen Education Group, was released today. John’s breadth of knowledge about the field of K-12 online and blended learning is extremely valuable to understanding where we’ve been and where we’re headed. Listen to the episode here.
Cynthia Clark of the University of Las Vegas Nevada recently authored a post on MVLRI’s blog, focusing on inquiry practices for online secondary science education. The piece which highlights some of the author’s own dissertation research can be found here.
