Panel Discussion on Saturday April 5 at National School Boards Association Conference

If you are attending the National School Boards Association conference in New Orleans this weekend (April 5-7), please come join a panel discussion that I’ll be moderating at 3:45 Saturday afternoon titled “Planning for Quality in Your Online/Blended Learning Program.” Here’s the description: These days it seems every school district wants its own online or blended learning program – if only to compete with charters and statewide schools. To do online/blended learning right, though, districts need to start with clear educational goals and then line up the specific curriculum, instructional, and training resources they need to achieve these goals. Learn how it's done from a cross-country panel of district leaders.

I’ll be joined by Kelly Schwirzke of the Santa Cruz County Office of Education (CA), Kim Loomis of Clark County School District Virtual High School (Las Vegas, Nevada), and LaTanya White of the Pottstown School District (PA).
