Overview

Blended Learning, Flipped Classroom, Distance Learning, 1:1...
the list could go on and on.  What do all these terms mean?  What is best for student achievement and engagement?

Adam Heidebrink-Bruno wrote the following on the Hybrid Pedagogy (an open-access, peer-reviewed journal):
    "The potential of teaching with technology has filled educators with both excitement and concern for over two millennia, and yet it remains a vital conversation even today."  Why is that? 

    Millard Public Schools has defined digital learning as the following:

    Digital learning encompasses instructional practices that effectively increase student and teacher productivity, creativity, innovation, personalization, and engagement through enhanced learning experiences using a wide spectrum of digital resources that improve teaching, learning, achievement.digital resources that
    improve teaching, learning, achievement.
    Millard is quickly moving towards a 1:1 environment.  In January of 2017 all 9-12 students will be issued laptops.  Middle level students will receive devices during the 17-18 school year.  It is imperative that teaching and classroom management styles are adapted to fully leverage the addition of this technology.

    Millard has developed Digital Learning Profiles, for all grade levels, to help teachers infuse technology rich activities into the curriculum.  Teachers should review and revisit these profiles frequently.
