Blended Learning 101

Blended Learning is one of the hottest new buzzwords and trends in education right now. Blended learning is the perfect intersection of technology and education because it combines face-to-face instruction with computer based instructions.

Come learn about how schools in New Orleans and across the country are using blended learning from educators who are trying it out now and leave with ideas of how to incorporate elements of blended learning in your own instruction.

We'll be holding a question storm before the event and pose these questions to the panelists. So come with questions!

Come enjoy some food and drinks over conversation around the future of education that is more personalized.

    Good group and an excellent topic. I've been using blended learning for 11 years, so this was an interesting opportunity to hear others share their experience. Also appreciated the chance for additional in-depth conversations following the meeting.
