“Getting Smart on Blending Middle Grade Math” highlights best practices and leaders in the field such as DreamBox Learning, Khan Academy, and KIPP schools as they foster blended approaches in teaching math to middle school students.
This collection of blogs provides techniques for increasing student engagement, building persistence, supporting the transition to more independent educational experiences, and preparing for future success in math.
The bundle outlines student-centered approaches to learning in blended math while featuring The Nellie Mae Education Foundation’s vision of four tenets that describe student-centered learning.
The four tenets are:
- Learning is Personalized
- Learning is Competency-Based
- Learning Happens Anytime, Anywhere
- Students Take Ownership Over Their Learning
This bundle was published in partnership with The Nellie Mae Education Foundation (NMEF). NMEF works with schools to implement the principles of student-centered learning—learning that is personalized, engaging, competency-based and happens anytime, anywhere. NMEF helps schools strengthen what is working and substantially update and improve policies and practices that are outdated.
