Even when we believe we’re thinking “outside the box,” we’re often limited in our capacity to envision new school models that are more personalized, leverage technology effectively, and ultimately improve learning. When designing schools and classrooms, we often don’t realize how heavily our ideas are influenced by the assumptions and mental models we have about learning and education. In this this webinar, Dr. Tim Hudson explored some of these hidden assumptions and help us imagine the full implications of blended learning that ensures high achievement for all students. This webinar recording will useful for superintendents, principals, curriculum directors, curriculum coordinators, and IT professionals.
