Forward-thinking schools and districts are implementing BYOD and 1:1 initiatives to enhance the learning experience. And some of those really innovative schools are evolving the roles of educators to accommodate the new blended learning models.

On April 15th, Julie Evans proctored a webinar with two Belvoir Christian Academy educators, Cathy Butterworth, Mentor Teacher, and Frank Streufert, School Principal.  Using Project Tomorrow’s Speak Up Research Project on the benefits and challenges of digital learning as a framework, the webinar covered national findings from the project as well as insight into how Belvoir Christian Academy has overcome obstacles in diminishing resources and how their teachers, like Mrs. Butterworth, have adapted to the new role of mentor teacher.

During the webinar the session participants learned:

  • How to create engaging digital content that moves beyond textbook replacement
  • Best Practices for evolving the teaching style to complement a digital learning model
  • How students perceive personalized learning and why they find it more beneficial
