Can we design learning experiences our students will love? Pandora does this for music; in fact, their mission is “to play music you’ll love.” They use the power of their music discovery platform to create a win-win partnership that helps artists find their fans and listeners find music they love.
Now, imagine an education system designed around learner preferences; where students discover new concepts in ways that are most comfortable for them and then demonstrate their understanding of those concepts using abilities and talents unique to them.
Dr. Cindy Elsberry, former Superintendent at Horry County, South Carolina, will illustrate that—just like Pandora—schools can design learning experiences that students will enjoy. Technology affords educators the opportunity to design student-centered experiences that will meet each student where they are academically and continue to challenge them. Teachers are then freed to design authentic, experiential learning challenges that engage students in learning in real and meaningful ways. Join this edWebinar to learn practical steps you can take to begin the journey to customized “learning that students will love!”
This edWebinar is designed for all K12 educators, librarians, literacy leaders, and administrators. There will be time at the end of Dr. Elsberry’s presentation to get your questions answered.
