On April 2nd, the Highlander Institute and the Christensen Institute are showcasing the best blended learning implementers from across the nation in Providence, Rhode Island at our Blended & Personalized Learning Conference.
Unlike many conferences throughout the year, this will be a chance for leaders and educators to discuss blended learning as it exists today on the ground - both in terms of the day-to-day in blended classrooms, and the strategies that systems have successfully used to implement blended learning across numerous schools and classrooms.
Instead of spending thousands of dollars to travel the US to shadow the best district leaders, building principals and classroom teachers in action --- with the generous support of funders --- we're bringing these folks to RI to share their expertise with RI leaders like you!
This conference will feature a mix of expert presenters answering questions in small, intimate fireside chats along with tactical & hands-on workshops showcasing the step by step practices that have led to these successful implementations across the country.
Some of our featured experts include:
Richard Culatta, Chief Innovation Officer at the RI Office of Innovation
Beth Rabbitt, Partner at The Learning Accelerator
Alex Hernandez, Partner at the Charter School Growth Fund (CSGF)
Julia Freeland Fisher, Director, Education at Clayton-Christensen Institute
Phyllis Lockett, CEO at LEAP Innovations
Some of our featured leaders & educators include:
Rebekah Kim: Principal at Midway Elementary School | Des Moines, WA
Scott Frauenheim & Colleen Collins: CICS West Belden & CICS Bucktown | Chicago, IL
Cary Matsouka: Superintendent of Milpitas Unified School District | Milpitas, CA
Jessica Anderson: Teacher at Powell County High School | Deer Lodge, MT
Opportunities to learn from the best of the best nationally do not happen every weekend. Please help us spread the word to RI educators so that we can fill the Rhode Island Convention Center with school committee members, district leaders, building principals and teachers all working together to bring a more personalized learning experience to students through the use of blended learning.
