Happy Wednesday! Our friends at DreamBox Learning are hosting a special webinar about blended and competency-based schooling. Check out the details below:
The Evolution of Blended and Competency-Based Schooling: What Lies Beyond the Horizon?
Presented by Dr. Tim Hudson, Vice President of Learning, DreamBox Learning
Wednesday, February 10, 2016
3pm – 4pm ET
Even when we believe we’re thinking “outside the box,” we’re often limited in our capacity to envision new school models that are more personalized, leverage technology effectively, and ultimately improve learning. When designing schools and classrooms, we often don’t realize how heavily our ideas are influenced by the assumptions and mental models we have about learning and education. In this this webinar, Dr. Tim Hudson will explore some of these hidden assumptions and help us imagine the full implications of blended learning that ensures high achievement for all students. He will field questions from attendees during this live, interactive session. This webinar will useful for superintendents, principals, curriculum directors, curriculum coordinators, and IT professionals.
Math offers a groundbreaking combination of intelligent adaptive learning, rigorous elementary mathematics curriculum, and motivating learning environment. The innovative DreamBox platform captures every decision a student makes while working in the program and adjusts the student’s learning path appropriately, providing millions of individualized learning paths, each one tailored to a student’s unique needs.
Our friends at DreamBox Learning

Middle school is a unique time in the psychosocial and academic development of all learners, and a particularly critical time for math students, who need to be engaged, excited, and prepared for the greater challenges they’ll face in high school. Our friends at DreamBox Learning created the whitepaper, Nurturing the Middle School Mathematical Mind, to explain the attitudes and behaviors that make pre-teen and young teen learners tick, and practical strategies your customers can use right now in schools and classrooms to help their students thrive and educators meet goals.
