We are pleased to announce the MassCUE and M.A.S.S. 2016 Annual Technology Conference, co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Computer Using Educators (MassCUE) and the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents (M.A.S.S.). Both organizations recognize the benefits of a collaborative partnership that focuses on the collective interests of our school districts.  We will be providing educators from across the Commonwealth and New England with exciting ways to enhance teaching and learning with technology.

Empowering Educators to Leverage Blended Learning Programs

In general, it is difficult for schools to implement blended learning programs with fidelity due to barriers that occur at the district, school, and classroom levels (Horn, Gu, & Evans, 2014). This session presents an implementation service approach, developed by Lexia Learning, that involves administrators at school and district levels as part of professional learning, which research has found to be essential to stronger implementations (Franey, 2015). Attendees will learn about different continuous improvement models in education (Park, Hironaka, Carver, & Nordstrom, 2013), used by Lexia as a method of capitalizing on data to inform instruction, promoting strategies that improve student usage and progress, and developing systems for year-long sustainability of implementation at both the leadership and educator levels. In small groups, participants will engage with one another and reflect on how each level of staff (administrators, reading and curriculum leaders, and classroom educators) contribute to implementation quality in their schools. Topics will include the role of leadership in setting specific goals, methods for monitoring progress towards goals, and communicating expectations for implementations with various school audiences.
