What participants are saying about this program:
"Your class inspired me and I am off to figure it all out!"
"When I started I thought that there were two types of teaching face to face and online. It never occurred to me that what I do every day in the Read 180 class is blended learning. I also never occurred to me that there are so many other ways to teach and create a blended setting. I am so excited to learn more. I want to learn more about flipping my classroom, about pushing my students with higher rigor, about challenging them and creating opportunities for them to learn and grow and create in a world where they will have to be comfortable to be successful. "
"I think this class has been of inestimable value for me... Probably the thing that hit me the hardest was when I realized that not only has my need to "catch up with technology" become vital to my future as a teacher, but it is also crucial in my role as a mother... I need to keep up with their world."
