Where are Blended & Personalized Learning Heading?

Blended Learning Conference

Many conferences offer discussions about the theoretical potential of blended and personalized learning. However, few manage to hone in on what educators are actually doing--and not doing--on the ground.

Districts and charters across the country are trailblazing, but to what degree of success? Thought leaders, researchers, and policy-makers are generating new ideas, but which ones hold the most promise? 

It’s clear we’re making progress, but each of us is innovating at warp speed with little time to reflect and share with each other.

We need a chance to convene, in person, to synthesize what's working for what students in which circumstances, validate frameworks that are having an impact, and learn from each other’s failures.
