BetterLesson Launches Video Series of Blended Learning in Action
Educational technology company BetterLesson has launched the Blended Master Teacher Project, a new online resource showcasing the practices of top blended learning teachers across the country.
BetterLesson is a grantee of The Learning Accelerator (TLA), a nonprofit organization supporting the implementation of high-quality blended learning in school districts across the U.S. With TLA’s support, BetterLesson identified 11 Master Teachers from across the country who were using blended learning in their classrooms. Selected based on their track records for driving student achievement and sharing their success with their peers and colleagues, the Blended Master Teachers have worked together with coaching and support from BetterLesson since the summer of 2014. Their teaching practices were captured in video and narrative form for sharing on BetterLesson’s new platform.
Jeff Liberty, BetterLesson’s senior director responsible for the design and launch of the project, said, “The quality of our classroom footage and the clarity of our Master Teachers’ explanations of their strategies will help demystify what blended learning is and what it looks like in practice in different contexts.”
The first phase of the project includes 53 videos and can be viewed here.
