Session Description:

In education we often here the term “best practices.” It is often included in the title or description of various educational publications. In almost each instance it is presented, it is framed as a silver bullet solution - if you do x best practice, you and your students will have success. However, we all know that there are no silver bullets in education. But there are “promising practices,” structural and pedagogical factors that have shown promise based on the research into K-12 distance, online, and/or blended learning. During this session, Michael Barbour and Randy LaBonte will explore what the research indicates may be things that you should consider in your own practice.
