Blended Learning Made Easy

Tuesday, June 2nd, 9am

This is an online event.

Take all the gains we made in technology this summer through remote learning and keep that momentum going. Come see how blended learning can transform your classroom and make learning a student-centered experience. We will discuss what blended learning is, different methodologies, how to implement the blended learning model, and then go through an immersive blended learning classroom.

Tech You Have To Try

Formative assessment has never been faster! Instantly poll your class a quick and easy way without needing devices or pen and paper! Download an app and scan student cards directly from your phone. Students present printed cards that get scanned and gathered into great data for teachers to use in real-time. Click here to see some great images of Plickers in action and sign up!


If you are like me complete quiet is something you think you want but sometimes you need that soft background noise of rain gently falling or soft waves crashing against the beach. Noisli is a great companion for those of us who need a little noise to help us focus, block out surrounding sounds, or just to calm and relax us. Background sounds have great masking abilities in reducing the negative impact of sudden spikes in external noise and enabling you to focus for longer periods of time. Click here and start experiencing the sounds of productivity.


Tired of using the same online way to quiz or have students compete? Quizizz is a great way for students to learn at home or in the classroom by having them compete online with customized quizzes. You can learn as a group or assign as individual practice. Create your own or pick from teacher-created quizzes covering several subjects!

It also integrates with Google Classroom and has Read aloud and other accessibility features so everyone can participate. Click here to give Quizizz a try.
