Effectively Communicating Blended and Personalized Learning To Build Buy In
Messaging and communicating blended and personalized learning initiatives to diverse stakeholders is critical to successful efforts. Effective communication takes preparation and thought; and aligning information to the needs and interests of teachers, governance boards, parents, students and the community requires some strategic planning.
This session is based on communication best practices from hundreds of schools and districts, as synthesized in the guide published by Education Elements and The Learning Accelerator: Communications Planning For Innovation in Education. In this session participants will hear from two experienced district leaders on how they effectively messaged their personalized learning initiatives. James Dallas from Loudoun County Public Schools, VA will focus on how to manage initial communication to families, communities, and schools and how to effectively explain the why of personalized learning. Deagan Andrews from Weld-Greeley School District 6, CO will focus on how to lead external communications and share stories of impact after implementation efforts have been up and running for a few years.
Loudoun County Schools (VA) is an urban/suburban school district in the metro DC area.
Weld-Greeley School District 6 (CO) is a suburban/rural school district in northern Colorado.
