Statewide Outreach Schedule
Blended learning holds tremendous potential for helping students and teachers alike access vital supplemental courses, digital content, and personalized information. The work of individual schools and districts across Colorado to leverage these opportunities prompted the Colorado General Assembly to commission a statewide blended learning roadmap.
Colorado Empowered Learning, a state program working to enhance equity and access in K-12 education through blended learning, has launched a statewide effort in February 2017 in partnership with the Keystone Policy Center to gather perspectives on Colorado’s use of supplemental courses and blended learning. The process, which will run through June 2017, will compile insights and best practices from:
- Colorado education experts;
- Blended learning leaders from across the United States; and,
- The opinion of Colorado families, educators, and school administrators.
To ensure Colorado’s roadmap reflects the opinions of a diverse array of communities, Colorado Empowered Learning is planning to host a series of meetings across the state in 2017:
In addition to the in person meetings, there will be two virtual (web and phone based) meetings:
