Webinar Series on Competency Based Education & Blended Learning


 

 

EdTech Specialists is proud to provide webinars and conversations around Competency Based Education and Blended Learning. For the first series in 2015, we brought together leaders from across the U.S. to present to us and converse with us in a webinar setting. For the second series, we showcased Michigan Districts that are implementing various CBE models. For part three in the series, we will be talking with practitioners who have been national leaders in implementing CBE. We will also be revisiting some of the previous conversations we had in the first two series to get updates on progress on their CBE journey.

Login information for the webinars is below.  Also, all previous webinars can be found below in both video and podcast format.  Please join us!

On Monday, February 26th at 9am, Becky Redmer, Executive Director of Jenison International Academy, will be a presenter for the EdTech Specialists CBE Webinar Series, Part 3. Jenison International Academy (JIA) formally established in 2011 as an entity of Jenison Public Schools, with the purpose of personalizing a learning experience for students in West Michigan and abroad. Since that time, JIA has expanded to offer several specialized programs and pathways, providing unique opportunities for students to customize their learning. Discover how JIA was formed, along with the development of each program and service JIA offers to students.

March 22, 9:00 am EST – Institute for Personalized Learning

Start with the Learner to Lead Systemic Change – In this webinar, you will get an introduction to the Institute for Personalized Learning and their Honeycomb Model, with an explanation of the how this framework supports a change strategy. Creating a system designed around personalized learning requires a shift from an instructional paradigm to a learning paradigm, which occurs with an intentional design of personalized learning elements, leading to systemic change. The Institute’s approach for systemic transformation is grounded in the Systemic Implementation of Personalized Learning Elements (SIMPLE) process. We will share this process, provide examples, and engage in dialog about how all the components of the honeycomb build on one another to eventually redesign the entire system.
