Publisher's Summary

Technology is awesome. Teachers are better. Blending new technologies into instruction is a non-negotiable if we are to help our students gain the skills they'll need to thrive in careers. And so too is educators' old school wisdom in planning intentional blended learning that works. Too often, sincere enthusiasm for technologies pushes proven instructional strategies to the wayside, all but guaranteeing blended learning that is all show and no go.

Bold School is an audiobook that restores teachers to their rightful place in effective instruction. Bold School thinkers embrace Blended pedagogies and Old school wisdom. In Bold School, teachers are put back into the blended learning equation. Blended learning is demystified and distilled into the powerful, yet simple Bold School Framework for Strategic Blended Learning - a methodology to help you meld purposeful technology use with your old school wisdom to enhance instruction and learning. After all, the goal of blended learning isn't technology - it's student achievement. With a Bold School mindset, every teacher is capable of finally delivering on the promise of blended learning.

Spot on!

Absolutely loved the book! The information it contains is applicable, easily implemented, and crucial for all educators! Weston did an excellent job narrating and listening was very enjoyable. After his visit to my school and binge listening to every single episode of his and his wife Molly's podcast Teaching Keating, I knew I had to read his books. One down, one to go...hoping for more after that! Thanks for being Bold School, Weston!

A Teacher Must Read

Such great information that can be applied to a physical (or online) classroom. Have something to write with in order to capture some of these amazing suggestions. Cannot wait to implement some of these techniques into my own classroom this coming school year!

Outcome Specific- knowledge acquired- change now

Rigor and Relevance will definitely be addressed. They'll be changed with a fresh perspective and reflection on my practices starting now. Weston's theories are everything I've been looking for.
