Practical Ideas and Strategies

Educators today are being asked to do more in their classrooms than ever before. Adding more curriculum standards to an already full, limited schedule can be overwhelming. With so many diverse student needs, how do we reach all our students and provide them with an opportunity to learn in the way that fits them best? How can we quickly assess each of our students without the hassle of carrying large stacks of paperwork home? How can we address the needs of students who are unable to access technology at home? Blended learning, when used effectively, can help address these challenges and provide our students with a richer variety of differentiated learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. Whether you have access to a classroom of technology devices or just one or a few, you can add elements of blended learning to fit your needs.

This NEW seminar is geared towards grades K-6 educators who want to provide a highly effective blended learning environment for their students. Stacey Schuh, an outstanding technology trainer and experienced using blended learning in the classroom, will share practical ways you can incorporate blended learning into your instructional program. She will provide you with dozens of ways to incorporate low-cost to free technology to support your current teaching practice. Blended learning is not about adding more work to your already busy schedule, but about taking what you are already doing and enhancing your current lessons with the effective and purposeful use of current technology.

Throughout this seminar, Stacey will focus on technology tools for more deeply engaging your students, building a community of learners and timesaving ways to blend instruction while quickly and more efficiently assessing student learning.

A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

What does blended learning look like in different classrooms? As educators, we want to provide the best environment for students to learn and grow. Where do we start? What about students who don’t have access to technology at home? If you are already using some blended learning in your classroom, how can you improve on your efforts? How can blended learning best be used to help our students? If you are interested in practical answers to these and other questions about the effective use of blended learning in grades K-6, then this is a seminar you won’t want to miss!

As an experienced elementary teacher, I understand the time constraints and pressures of meeting the diverse needs of a classroom of students. I have had the opportunity to experience firsthand how blended learning not only supports what we are doing in our classrooms, but how it engages reluctant learners and creates rich, authentic opportunities for student learning. Throughout our day together, I will share what a highly effective elementary blended learning environment looks like; ways to use free tools for collaboration, communication and assessment; and the best practices for teaching in this type of learning environment.

I invite you to join me for a day of exploration and discussion on how to implement blended learning in your classroom. Whether you are just thinking about incorporating blended learning into your instruction or you are looking for ways to build on what you are already doing, you will leave with a plethora of practical strategies and timesaving tips you’ll be able to use immediately.

I look forward to meeting you at the seminar!

Sincerely,
Stacey Schuh
