Explore how school districts can keep pace with global evolutions in technology and education during Connections Learning by Pearson-sponsored Webinar

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) October 27, 2015

How can school districts blend traditional teaching methods with technology to help students achieve their best learning outcomes? Join district educators from Hawaii Technology Academy in a live webinar to learn how their approach to student-centered blended learning is improving outcomes and connecting students to their teachers and communities across the district—and a chain of islands.

Webinar Title: No Student Is an Island: Improving Outcomes With Blended Learning
Date: Wednesday, October 28, 2015
Time: 3 PM ET
Host: Education Week
Sponsor: Connections Learning by Pearson

Guests:

  • Marc Collins, High school math teacher, Hawaii Technology Academy, Oahu, Hawaii
  • Donna Therrien, Director of Pedagogical Practice, Hawaii Technology Academy, Oahu, Hawaii
  • Evan Pinto, Regional Manager, Virtual Learning, Pearson (moderator)

Seventy-five percent of all U.S. school districts offer online or blended courses, according to Keeping Pace With K-12 Online & Blended Learning (2013).

“By adding technology, we are maximizing student instruction time rather than minimizing it,” said Donna Therrien, Director of Pedagogical Practice at Hawaii Technology Academy. “We can also analyze our student data in real time, make collaborative decisions, and act on them right away to improve the learning experience.”
