Workshops: Finding Your Balance with Blended Learning
These hands-on workshops give educators who are using blended learning models the opportunity to dive deeper into the strategies presented in Balance with Blended Learning. We will explore metacognitive routines designed to get students thinking about their learning. Participants will learn how to rethink traditional workflows, use video strategically, shift feedback and assessment into the classroom, design and use rubrics, and conduct grade interviews. These workshops are designed to help teachers rethink our workflow, embrace new teaching and learning models that leverage technology, and shift ownership of learning over to students.

A Message from the Commissioner
The only expectation of public education that eclipses its responsibility to provide an excellent education for every student every day is to take all necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of every student every day. DEED is committed to continuing to work closely with district leadership, teachers, staff, and communities as they create plans to deliver education to their students for the upcoming school year.
