TEACHER TALK WEBINAR

How Teachers Are Leading Change for Personalized Learning

Thursday, February 16, 2017

6:00p.m. – 7:00 p.m. ET (register)

On Thursday, February 16, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) is hosting a Teacher Talk webinar to explore how teachers are leading the transition of their schools and districts toward personalized learning to improve learning experiences for all students.

Teachers across the country are developing new learning designs to personalize instruction and meet the unique needs of each student. Join this webinar to learn first-hand from teachers and leaders from Pennsylvania’s East Pennsboro Area School District on leading transformative change from traditional classroom models toward personalized learning models. Learn how to begin and lead the transition toward personalized learning in your own school or district to design learning environments for students to excel and thrive.

iNACOL CEO Susan Patrick said, “Across the world, teachers are changing their instructional models and shifting practice by personalizing learning. Personalized learning requires effective teaching, first and foremost, as well as new strategies and methods in a cycle of goal setting, supports, pathways and students showing what they know. When instruction is customized to each students’ needs, interests and pathways, teachers create powerful, personalized learning opportunities each day. This paradigm shift from one-size-fits-all content delivery to preparing each and every student for success also helps build skills for entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation.”

This webinar is free to attend – participants are invited to register here for final details and login information.

Last Chance—Michael Horn Webinar: Increasing Student Motivation

Note this event tomorrow.

Please add us to your address book to ensure our emails reach your inbox.
Content Provided by:

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.

Guests:

Michael Horn, co-founder and distinguished fellow, Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation

Camilla Liferidge-Pinckney, high school curriculum coordinator, Dorchester School District Two, S.C.

Kelly Purvis, middle school curriculum coordinator, Dorchester School District Two, S.C.

This webinar will be moderated by Jason Mitchell, Strategic Initiatives, Apex Learning

Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017, 2 to 3 p.m. ET
