Our team from the EdReady Montana Program at the Montana Digital Academy is highly involved in the DLAC 2023 Conference. We have 3 sessions and will be sharing a booth with the great folks at NROC!
We hope to connect with any educators looking to assess and address the challenges related to gaps in student math or English skills. We want to share our information and resources with you and see if we can help you and your team in any way.
Main Stage Panel Discussion: Maximizing Student Progressions and College Readiness – at Scale (Tuesday, February 14 @2pm-2:45, Room: Mainstage Lonestar Ballroom) – Learn how two states have positively impacted math and ELA preparedness for hundreds of schools and tens of thousands of students over the past several years with the support of The NROC Project, the national non-profit organization. In Texas, the Commit Partnership hosts the Texas College Bridge program and provides the staff and coordination required to manage the program at scale. Similar staffing, coordination, and hosting for EdReady Montana are provided by Montana Digital Academy. Both programs have embraced a technology-facilitated ‘personalized learning’ approach to provide individualized learning pathways to every student. We will compare and contrast the specific strategies for deployment, growth, and ongoing effort in each case.
Poster Session: Implementing Blended Learning at Your School or School District – (Monday, February 13 @4:30-6pm, Room JW Grand Ballroom Exhibit Hall) – The team from the Montana Digital Academy has worked with hundreds of schools since 2014 to guide them in the implementation of blended learning solutions into their classrooms, test prep programs, supplemental educational programs, summer bridge programs and formal math and writing placement solutions. This poster session will provide attendees with the opportunity to connect with our team. Discussions will build upon our plenary panel discussion about scaling these solutions and give an opportunity for attendees to see how our lessons can have a direct impact on their programs. Attendees will discuss their similar needs and come away with strategies, links and even handouts/resources that will be available on our website.
Table Talk: Personalized Learning Pathways in Foundational Math and Writing Skills – (Monday, February 13 @1:45pm-2:23pm, Room: Griffin Hall TT4)- Attendees will gain an understanding of how our team has helped hundreds of schools and thousands of teachers in the past 8 years to integrate a personalized learning pathway tool into classrooms from upper elementary and middle to high school and beyond in Montana. Our efforts have focused on the foundational math and writing skills needed to succeed in the key transition points of middle to high school level math and high school to college level writing and math. Resources and strategies that we use will be shared and discussed in relation to personal needs of attendees. Use cases similar to those brought by attendees will be discussed by the presenters as well as any other attendees with similar needs or experiences.
