explore learning opportunities and
energize your class through blended learning.
Engaged learners will say “I do.”

Big Idea
Blended Learning "Mobile Meets Blended: Happily Ever After"

Learning Goals

Minds On
Participants will engage in a model lesson by taking on student role.

Action
Explore numerous apps
Identify how best to differentiate to reach all learners
Investigate different methods for creating and sharing content within an online environment (edmodo, desire2learn, etc.)
