Professional development event offers a forum for educators to explore innovative ways to increase student achievement through blended learning
SEATTLE, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Apex Learning, the leading provider of blended and virtual learning solutions to the nation's schools, will host a Blended Learning Conference in Seattle on June 19. This event is one of a series of sold-out conferences that Apex Learning has hosted during the 2013–2014 school year in locations across the country.
Featuring keynote speaker Jon Bergmann, one of the pioneers of the Flipped Classroom Movement, the conference offers educators an opportunity to discover new ways to personalize learning for all students as well as learn about best practices for effective blended learning.
"We were able to network, discuss best practices and really share what works and what doesn't with other educators," said Jennifer Roberts, a math teacher from the Dorchester County School District Two who attended the Blended Learning Conference held in South Carolina. "I would recommend this event and can't wait to attend again."
Topics for breakout sessions range from teachers exploring how to implement blended learning to raise student achievement to district administrators discussing how to manage and evaluate these programs. Peer presentations focus on overcoming challenges, discussing success factors and the future direction for blended learning. There is also an opportunity to learn the basics of blended learning for those who are new to the approach.
