Over the past several years, the term blended learning has become an educational buzzword around the country. But for those who don’t know what blended learning is or what it looks like, incorporating it into the classroom can seem intimidating. The truth is, blended learning is a different teaching and learning style for both a teacher and student, but it is easy to start small and work towards a fully blended classroom that can foster student agency and increase student achievement. Check out the short animation below for an overview of what blended learning is!Watch the Animation!

Public schools are everybody’s business! That’s the main point of CEI’s advocacy work. In order to create and sustain excellence in public education, everyone—educators, parents, students, community organizations, businesses—needs to be informed about our public schools and how best to support them. We issue regular online communications about what is going on in our network of public schools to help inform stakeholders about effective practices, school priorities and how policies impact the real world of schools and classrooms.
