About our guest: Dr. Jessi Anderson is the 2016 Montana Teacher of the Year, and a BetterLesson Master Teacher, contributing strategies for bringing Blended Learning into the classroom. Jessi started blending her Earth Science classes as her students became more technologically savvy and interested in challenging the traditional aspects of the curriculum, including lectures and worksheets. It was at this point that she knew that she needed to move to a more inquiry-based and student-directed classroom. After a year of hauling mobile labs to her classroom, her school went 1:1 with iPads which made the leap into blended easier. This shift has been a game changer in her practice and for the students she loves to teach.
