DISCUSSION: Digital Learning Day Live Chat on Education Policy, Practice, and Media

As part of Digital Learning Day (Feb. 6) , John Merrow and other education experts participated in an exciting online chat!

Is 2013 the breakthrough year for blended learning? How can resources like the Khan Academy and massive open online courses (MOOCs) help teachers deliver high-quality content? What limitations, whether technical or human, could impact the spread of digital learning? In this special edition chat, our “rock star” panel debated these questions and answered those submitted by viewers:

John Merrow, PBS education correspondent
Kim Sharp, Instructional Media Coordinator, Vistas High School Program, Klein ISD, Texas
Greg Toppo, USA Today education reporter
Governor Bob Wise, Alliance for Excellent Education President
Jill Barshay, Hechinger Report, moderator

The chat ran from 11:30am - 12:30pm EST on Wednesday, February 6th. The transcript can be viewed below or downloaded here (.pdf).
