Rick Ogston, Carpe Diem High School, Yuma, Arizona

Rick Ogston, Director of Carpe Diem High School in Yuma, Arizona, explains why a blended learning model is so important. It’s about a change in the way information is used, and the way schools function in a global world.
He worries that we are not making students competitive for a digital working and social life, given that so much of the rest of the world already understands this.
Carpe Diem uses a blended learning model to teach its high school and middle school students.
This interview picks up halfway in, because he really started talking about what he does after we turned the camera off for the first time.
