Princeton, NJ – February 12, 2013 – DreamBox Learning®, the leading Intelligent Adaptive Learning™ company, and edWeb.net, a professional social and learning network for the education community, today announced the launch of Blended Learning, an online professional learning community (PLC) to support educators exploring and implementing blended learning models for elementary mathematics.
The Blended Learning PLC will provide a collaborative forum for administrators, math coaches, curriculum coordinators, and teachers of mathematics to gather and share insights as schools and districts implement blended learning models at the classroom level.
“As the pioneer of intelligent adaptive learning, DreamBox Learning has redefined personalized instruction in the classroom,” said Lisa Schmucki, founder and CEO of edWeb.net. “Blended learning is an area of great interest to our online professional learning community and we’re thrilled to provide such high caliber experts to educators to improve their knowledge and help them implement best practices in classrooms.”
As part of the partnership with edWeb.net, DreamBox Learning will host a monthly Blended Learning webinar series as well as provide a dedicated blog and access to resources and tools that will allow educators to receive a Continued Education (CE) certificate.
The next webinar, Principal’s Guide to Blended Learning for Elementary Mathematics, is scheduled for February 27 at 3:00 p.m. EST. The session will be presented by well-known author and educator Dr. Jeff Piontek, who will present the keys to implementing successful blended learning models that leverage the powerful combination of real-time and online interaction to improve math teaching and student learning.
The joint effort benefits both edWeb.net and DreamBox Learning. “Joining forces with edWeb.net provides DreamBox Learning with the unique opportunity to engage directly with forward-thinking administrators and educators who are actively exploring innovative ways to increase student confidence and achievement in math through blended learning and differentiation,” said Jessie Woolley-Wilson, President and CEO at DreamBox Learning. “We’re very excited to share our knowledge and success stories as well as learn from the community as we collectively continue to inspire positive outcomes in education.”
