#BirdvilleBlended 4/24/17

spotlights, resources, & celebrations from Birdville Blended

The last two weeks have been full of blended check-in meetings with the 8th and 10th grade teams. A few more check-ins are scheduled this and next week. Several teams are trying out new lessons and structures this last 6-weeks, and most teams are actively participating in the Year 2 Canvas course that has been going since January. With STAAR and EOC behind us, this last 6-weeks is the perfect time to pilot a few aspects of blended learning, and the amazing Technology department is helping out by moving up the dispersal of Bond classroom devices to get them in all classrooms before summer break.

As always, getting to talk with the innovative and positive teachers eager to try new things to better reach all students makes me hopeful for the second year of implementing blended learning in BISD classrooms. Great coaches, dedicated teachers, and supportive administrators will all make Year 2 of the Raising Blended Learners grant a success for our students. ~Tosh McGaughy

Blended Summer Professional Development

As we have discussed, there will be many options for blended teachers to get small group and one-on-one help this summer preparing to blend in the fall. Remember, if there is a different time or day that would work better for you or your team, please let us know. We will work to accommodate your schedules and needs.
