“I loved getting the chance to hear what others were doing in their schools.”

This is a representative reaction to the inaugural events of K-12 Lunch ‘n Learn, a Blackboard initiative designed to bring experts—and a good meal—to K-12 technology directors, superintendents, and communications directors nationwide.

These are not training sessions but rather thought leadership gatherings. You can expect focus groups, panels, and other discussions. Topics will vary but all will relate to 21st-century educational technology. Examples include the following:

  • mobile devices in the classroom
  • measuring active-passive learning
  • professional development

Blackboard staff on hand will be able to suggest customized solutions in real time to issues you may be having.

After our first Lunch ‘n Learn sessions, 93% of attendees surveyed said they would attend another in the future. And 100% found the opportunity to network with other districts valuable.

One attendee reported, “It was very interesting to hear from a teacher and student. These are the stakeholders and their opinions matter the most.”

We look forward to meeting you, learning from you, and sharing best practices with you at an upcoming Lunch ‘n Learn near you.
