This is the first year I have attended the Hawaii Education Leadership Summit, which focused on best practice strategies for integrating technology and online resources. Summit attendees were from public and private K-12 schools around the state and it was a good networking opportunity to share technology and distance learning needs with one another. The highlight of the summit was our leadership team having the time to discuss and formalize actionable outcomes to progress distance learning at KS. Here are our outcomes.
Identify strategies to make KSDL a “one-stop” area for Hawaiian culture and language.
Strategize different online learning models that will ensure quality while being sustainable over time (e.g. development time, revenue generating, etc.)
Identify strategies to have more learner-focused KS online programs through building in hands-on learning.
Identify strategies to incorporate Response to Intervention (RTI) to differentiate instruction and set clear goals for student learning plans.
I look forward to our team progressing on the outcomes identified as well as our commitment to publicly showcasing KS distance learners’ work.
