Human side of Blended Learning: Building Relationships

by Cathie Maglio, Blended Learning Specialist

As a blended learning specialist with JFYNetWorks, most of my time is spent in classrooms working with teachers.

When I’m not in the classroom, I am running reports on student work to send to the teachers.

The new MCAS 2.0 tests for 10th grade will not be in place until the spring of 2019, but preview tests will be administered this spring. All Massachusetts high schools will be randomly assigned either ELA or math and they are expected to have at least 25% of their students participate. The preview testing window for 10th grade will be between the regular English and math MCAS tests, from April 23 through May 11.
