"Blended Education" Initiative Gains State-Wide Attention
(7-31-14) Administrators from across Nebraska are in Kearney to learn how to improve their schools.
Among topics during the three-day conference is Blended Education or Blend-Ed, a combination of face-to-face learning or online learning which uses elements of digital tools. Blend-Ed has been successful in pilot programs in other states, including Kansas.
In addition to Blend-Ed, the Department of Education is focused on raising the bar in all areas of Nebraska education. A new standard for English and Language Arts will be approved in September.
