The goal of my presentation is to introduce the Modern Classroom Project movement that can transform any classroom with these key components: blended learning, self-pacing, and frequent mastery checks. Teachers create short instructional videos which students watch and then work on activities at their own pace. The teacher is able to work with students individually or in small groups which allows greater knowledge of each student’s abilities and challenges. Learning is broken down into small chunks with students taking a short mastery check showing whether they are ready to move on.
Participants will be engaged by experiencing a Modern Classroom in action! The learning target would be: I can explain how a Modern Classroom would help me better differentiate and know my students’ abilities through three key components: blended instruction, self-pacing, and mastery checks. Participants would watch a short introduction video, engage in activities to create a student tracker of assignments, and take a mastery check to complete the final step.

Key takeaways will be for teachers to consider signing up for the free Modern Classroom Project virtual course which walks them through implementing the process. Teachers will be encouraged to try recording short instructional videos and plan follow-up activities for students to do which will free up the teacher to work with students in small groups or individually. By eliminating the whole group instruction, students will ease into working at their own pace.
