With schools just back in session for the second half of the year, it may seem premature to start talking about spending next year’s budget.  But, given how quickly the academic year flies and the magnitude of decisions that need to be made by education leaders, this is the perfect time to start preparing to invest in cutting edge technology that  enables schools to embrace the benefits of online and blended learning.

Over the course of the next few months, the team from Learn Outside the Lines, will be checking in with our education leaders to find out what investments they advise schools and districts to make now in order to leverage the most benefit from blended learning programs in the coming year.  From expanding your catalog to include AP® and world language courses, to helping students catch up or get ahead (whether in the summer or during the school year), to providing career readiness through engaging electives, offering math tutoring for middle school students, to supporting English Language Learners, there’s a wealth of educational opportunities that can be integrated into student learning through a blended learning strategy.

As the year progresses, each month we’ll take a closer look at the types of solutions that are available for each of these focus areas, and how your investment  can improve student outcomes for your district.  Moreover we’ll ask our education technology leaders about any lessons they’ve learned from implementing their own programs so that you can build your own set of best practices as you move forward from budget planning to execution.

As always we want to know what’s top of mind for you.  Got questions, opinions, or your own best practice to share?  Let us know in the comments below, send us a tweet, or share your thoughts on LinkedIn.
