The @BlackboardK12 BITS Learning Sessions #28 #BbK12Live

I've partnered with BlackboardK12 to share out the awesome sessions they are having this Fall. Educators can sign up to attend and share with other great educators what they have learned. I'll featurae the session and the description on my blog each week and on my Twitter account. If you have questions, feel free to shoot a tweet to @BlackboardK12. Have fun learning and sharing!

Meeting the Needs of ALL Learners through Individualized Learning

This presentation will explore how the affordances made available by learning management systems (LMSs) can help meet the needs of all students by individualizing learning. Individualization refers to instruction that is paced and adjusted to the learning needs of different learners. A teacher who individualizes instruction selects technology and responses to support the learning needs of the individual learner and monitors learning to decide next steps and integrates an assessment of learning. Yet, most LMSs are not utilized to their fullest potential and participants in this session will learn about how instruction can be individualized through adaptive and conditional release.
