WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 21, 2016) – On Thursday, October 20, 2016 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) is hosting a Teacher Talk Webinar to share insights on instructional tools for personalized learning.

How can teachers create a classroom environment that enables student voice and choice, deeper learning and agency, while ensuring students develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions that lead to success?

Join this webinar to hear from Brooke Berry, a middle school student at Eminence Independent School District, and her father Buddy Berry, Superintendent at Eminence Independent School District, about instructional tools designed for personalized learning.

Teachers will learn how to embed tools and practices into their pedagogical approaches to create powerful, personalized learning opportunities for all students. Buddy will discuss how to empower teachers to make the shift toward personalized learning, and Brooke will share tools and instructional examples for teachers to bring back to their own students, including project-based learning, passion projects and more.
