    “Today’s students are knowledge seekers, and information seekers, and users of social networking technology. And in order to be successful in our global economy, and in order for them to be global citizens, they need to learn using social networking tools and globalization tools. And Blackboard Learn, Release 9.1 is the closest available to providing that functionality in a learning management system today.”

    • We need to prepare learners to be globally competitive through the development of 21st century skills.”
    Jed Friedrichsen, Chief Administrative Officer, Blendedschools.net
    • I don’t believe there’s a district in the nation that would tell you standards doesn’t play a role in the work that they do.  In this age of accountability, our state assessment system is driven by state standards.  Therefore, we have to be granular about what our standards are and how those standards translate into instruction.”
