Read project description
This blog seeks to digest information about blended and personalized learning and publish it in bite-sized nuggets for the Westerly High School community. Our goal is for this space to be a bi-weekly dose of “what’s good” – some inspiration, a new idea, a spotlight on a colleague facing similar challenges as you, a baby step that you can take to shift your craft to a more personalized, yet pedagogically sound, model.
