Utilizing Blended Learning to Close Opportunity and Achievement Gaps: Lessons from Citizen Schools Digital Courseware Pilot

Utilizing Blended Learning to Close Opportunity and Achievement Gaps: Lessons from Citizen Schools Digital Courseware Pilot

In the 2016-17 school year, Citizen Schools completed the second year of our initiative to pilot and evaluate digital courseware across our national network to learn more about how best to integrate technology into Expanded Learning Time (ELT) for middle school students.

Creating a World of Opportunity

"What those training sessions and your life's lessons can never prepare you for is what you will see when you realize that those faces staring back at you are our world's opportunity."

Former Teaching Fellow Ashley Miranda shares an original poem, inspired by her work as a TF in Boston. This video was shot and edited by Ashley's brother Elias Miranda - a former Citizen Schools student and current Massachusetts Board Member - with his production company EMP.

This video debuted at our WOW!NOW Gala last week, where we honored TripAdvsior as partner of the year.
