Blended & Personalized Learning—Separating Myths From Reality

Dates: This event took place on March 3-4, 2017

Location: Pullman San Francisco Bay Hotel, 223 Twin Dolphin Drive, Redwood City, CA 94065

Ask three different school administrators for a definition of blended and personalized learning and be ready for three different answers: “it’s adaptive technology!;” “It’s remote access!”; “It’s virtual schooling for part of the day and face-to-face classes the rest!” During the March, 2017, School CIO Summit in Redwood Shores, CA, more than 50 innovative district leaders will convene to hone those answers and create a definition of what blended and personalized learning really means at a district level. Participants will share best practices from their districts, analyze models that work, and discuss the challenges faced by district leaders as they work to support the diverse needs of their communities.

In addition to examining this theme, attendees will have the opportunity to suggest topics for small group discussions that they will attend during the second day of the conference. Topics range from data privacy to professional learning, 1:1 models to facilitating change. SchoolCIO Summit participants are both teachers and learners at these events, sharing their challenges and successes with their peers, brainstorming solutions to a variety of challenges, building a personal learning network of colleagues they can turn to for counsel throughout the year, and walking away with action items they can put into place in their districts.
