Teacher Perceptions of Learner-Learner Engagement at a Cyber High School
Wednesday, 6/8/16, 2pm EDT

This session will share findings of a case study on teachers at a full-time cyber charter school and their behaviors that most positively impact student engagement and learning: befriending, motivating, instructing, and collaborating.

Presenter:
Jered Borup, George Mason University

All webinars are held via Adobe Connect (https://connect.mivu.org/mvlri); there is no registration required. Attendees are encouraged to participate in our webinar sessions using the text chat window. We also encourage attendees to chat on Twitter using #MVLRIchat.

Innovation is alive and well in Kentucky’s public schools. In this episode, we talk with David Cook, the Director of the Division of Innovation and Partner Engagement at the Kentucky Department of Education. We get into some exciting conversations around two very innovative programs that his division oversees: school districts of innovation and the non-traditional instruction program. Listen here.
MVLRI is excited to host representatives from the American Institutes for Research for an upcoming webinar on the impact of on-site mentors or facilitators on student success in online courses for credit recovery. Studies conducted by AIR, which will be the basis of this session, have received national attention from news outlets including NPR. Their findings help shape an ongoing conversation around how to improve the use of online learning in K-12 settings. Click here to learn more and register for the event.
