Michael Horn on Increasing Student Achievement Through Engaging Digital Curriculum
“Increased student achievement is correlated to motivating coursework: An engaged and motivated student is more likely to be a high-achieving student.”
—John Hattie, professor of education and director of the Melbourne Education Research Institute, University of Melbourne, Australia (2009)
But what does engagement-for-achievement look like in a digital environment? In order to keep all students motivated, especially those who struggle or have been disengaged from school, educators need to ensure that engagement is built into the very DNA of the course design. In the digital environment, engaged students experience personalized learning and actively participate in their learning.
Attend this webinar to hear Michael Horn and district leaders discuss how well-designed digital curriculum ensures that real learning takes place, engages students, and leads to higher achievement. They will provide examples of districts and schools that use personalized, competency-based blended learning to increase student motivation and graduation rates, and share resources that can help your district provide a path to success for all students.
