PresenceLearning Offers Whitepaper on Using Blended Learning for SPED
Online speech therapy and special education provider PresenceLearning has published a new whitepaper, “Getting Smarter About SPED: A Conversation about Blended Learning Decisions and Implications.” Based on a webinar featuring Tom Vander Ark, author of Getting Smart: How Digital Learning is Changing the World and CEO of Getting Smart; Maria Carr, special education coordinator at IEM; and Robin Wise, blended regions special service manager at K12, the paper explores the benefits of blended learning in special education.
The paper’s authors discuss the driving forces behind blended learning in special education, share a step-by-step process that educators can use to adopt a blended learning model for SPED, and give examples of blended learning models that have helped special needs students.
Vander Ark (pictured) said, “Blended learning has the potential to redefine special education because of its emphasis on individualized learning, but students will not reap the benefits of it unless it is implemented in an effective way.”
The paper is the latest addition to PresenceLearning’s growing library e-books, white papers, infographics and other materials that give special education administrators and leaders expert information on topics affecting special education, as well as insight into how they can better manage challenges and increase student outcomes.
