Event Details

In The Right Mix: How One Los Angeles School is Blending a Curriculum for Personalized Learning, Education Sector profiles the Alliance Tennenbaum Family Technology High School, a blended learning pioneer that is illustrating both the strengths and challenges of implementing  a radical new way of educating students.  In a neighborhood where only 40 percent of adults graduated from high school, and with 48 students to a classroom, the school is using blended learning to overcome the odds. It does it by splitting students into three groups: one group gathers for traditional teacher-led instruction,  other students work independently online, and a third group  collaborates with each other. “What looks like a class size of 48 students,” says author Susan Headden, “effectively becomes an ideal student-to-teacher ratio of 16-to-1.”

Join us on Friday, March 22 for a panel discussion on blended learning: the promises and challenges in policy and practice. The panel will feature Mickie Tubbs, the principal of Alliance Tennenbaum; John Bailey, executive director of Digital Learning Now! at the Foundation for Excellence in Education; Bill Tucker, deputy director, Policy Development, U.S. Program Policy & Advocacy for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; and Erin Rubinstein, special education teacher at Virginia Virtual Academy. Headden, Education Sector’s managing editor, will moderate.

Registration and light refreshments begin at 9:00 AM, event begins at 9:30 AM.
