Digital learning with tablets and other technology offers enormous potential to engage students and personalize learning.  This webinar will showcase how two school districts are creating new learning environments both inside and outside the traditional classroom.  You’ll hear about:

Humboldt County Office of Education’s collaboration with the Sequoia Park Zoo to create a participatory Learning Lab, where students take their tablets into the field to research the zoo’s unique ecosystem up close.

Lexington School District Two, whose interactive 1:1 learning initiative has put technology in the hands of 5,000 students in both flipped and blended classrooms, and recently hosted a Math Bowl competition utilizing tablets and Samsung’s interactive learning platform.

Presenters will discuss the challenges they faced in implementing these unique programs and share best-practices for leveraging mobile technology to inspire student collaboration and engagement.
