ESU3 Blended Learning Fair
ESU 3 hosted a Blended Learning Fair on March 11. It was a great day of learning that included a keynote by Catlin Tucker (@Catlin_Tucker), an English Teacher, that has been implementing blended learning into her own classroom for years and has written two books on the topic. Sessions included Maker Spaces, Tools for the Blended Classroom, Personalized Learning, and Flexible Learning Spaces. The day was capped off by a presentation from our own Ann Feldmann who provided an engaging presentation on building a blended learning environment. For more information on blended learning we encourage you to check out the resources below.
