DESCRIPTION

Challenged with meeting the expectations of their 21st century learners, teachers are constantly trying to find ways to make their instruction more engaging in order to ultimately increase student achievement. Districts are also striving to increase teacher efficiency through organizational and planning tools, including aligning content with state learning standards. Join us for an interactive discussion with three Blackboard clients, blendedschools.net (PA), OCM BOCES (NY) and Volusia County Schools (FL), who have had early access to our latest release, Blackboard Learn(TM)Release 9.1. They will share best practices around how Blackboard has been critical in helping them achieve their educational objectives, as well as reflect on the new K-12 functionality that will further enrich their programs and help them meet their goals.

  • I dont believe theres a district in the nation that would tell you standards doesnt play a role in the work that they do. In this age of accountability, our state assessment system is driven by state standards. Therefore, we have to be granular about what our standards are and how those standards translate into instruction.
