The Virtual School Symposium organized by iNACOL is the premier K-12 conference for online and blended learning each year. With many of our K-12 clients in attendance, the Blackboard K-12 Team, including representation from Blackboard Learn, Mobile, Collaborate, and Connect, traveled to Indianapolis to collaborate and connect with several K-12 leaders from our client community in sessions exploring trends, challenges, and best practices integrating Blackboard in online and blended learning. One highlight of the conference was a session we organized featuring students, “Student Panel: Expanding Opportunities & Closing Gaps in K-12 Education with Multiple Online Learning Models.” Julie Young, the President and CEO of the Florida Virtual School , expertly moderated the panel. She welcomed students representing multiple models of successful online learning using Blackboard Learn products. Paul Pratt, a senior from Fishers High School from Hamilton Southeastern School District, spoke about his experiences in a blended learning environment. Nikki Kuhlman, a senior at Saint Theodore Guerin Catholic High School, described a unique blended experience at Guerin, a 1:1 initiative in which each student uses a laptop as an integral part of the daily teaching and learning experience. Jazmyn Styles, a senior from Pike High School, and Kati Gregory, a junior from Speedway High School, both took at least one fully online high school course at the Indiana Online Academy and spoke about their experiences participating in a virtual school. The goal of the student panel was to explore how multiple forms of online learning have improved their teaching and learning experiences, expanded their opportunities, and closed gaps in the lives of these students.
