You may recall a few Blogs back, we wrote about our excitement and impressions at the first Annual Greeley-Evans School District 6 Summit for Learning, led by Superintendent, Dr. Dierdre Pilch. During this day, there was a distinct overview on Blended Learning in the School Site and as participants we were able to see this in action across the schools in this Colorado District. Needless to say, we were inspired, motivated and proud to see such a comprehensive clear plan that was working for students AND staff.
Recently, I had a chance to check in on a few students and one impressive Instructional Coach for Greeley Evans School District 6, Kimberly Reynolds. Students were becoming more fluent and efficacious with their online learning environment and teachers were overjoyed with the breakdown of data reports that they were able to see instantly to inform their instruction. On this particular day, Kimberly was able to probe a bit and establish some context to their learning.
Students of all ages and grades, in this district, are getting acclimated to Technology Advanced Items and richer depth of knowledge recall and evaluation. With such critical thinking components tied into a scaffold of resources, embedded into 21st Century Technology, the acceleration and mindset for these youngsters is one of a positive trajectory and innovative mindset for all.
We will continue to follow the Journey of Innovation and Success with the Blended Learning Initiative of Greeley Evans School District 6 and share learnings amongst our collaborative groups. Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for more conversations and updates.
