November 10-12, 2013: Thought Leadership Consortium

Adaptive Assessment & Instruction

The BLEgroup believes that both school systems and ed tech industry firms benefit from understanding each other’s perspectives on evolving critical systems such as adaptive assessment and adaptive instruction. During the second week of November we are hosting a consortium on Adaptive Assessment and Instruction at Hotel Heathman in Portland, Oregon. We believe that adaptive tools are central to the effectiveness of individualizing learning and implementing Common Core Standards.

March 2014: Thought Leadership Consortium

Web-based Professional Development – Current State and View from the Schools and the Industry

There is a major need for web-based professional development to inform of new technologies and content, but to date, the impact has been limited. This session will review the current options for professional development and explore the potential for future web-based opportunities from the viewpoints of both the education community and professional development companies. Four professional development companies and four sophisticated school districts will talk with each other for two days. The outcome of the consortium will be a set of thought leadership articles that will be distributed to both education decision-makers and firms in the industry.

*Note: Participating school districts will be chosen from among interested districts within the BLEgroup. Firms who are interested in participating should contact the BLEgroup. The thought leadership sessions are conducted at cost.
