Join us as we explore how Dr. Bobbie Reeders, Principal of the Killeen Independent School District's Pathways Academic Program, and Kim Wray, Course Development Specialist at the Idaho Digital Learning Alliance, are using EdReady, a personalized learning platform, to help at-risk and virtual students prepare for college.
Timi Creekmore, of Texas College Bridge, will moderate the discussion, which promises to address ease of implementation, how EdReady differs from other adaptive learning technologies, successes and lessons learned, and how to secure student buy-in and maintain student engagement and motivation.
