Nashville, TN (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Today, RANDA Solutions' Chief Strategy Officer Randall Dennis, announced SXSW Education's event voting has opened for his upcoming panel "Will it Blend". While Dennis' concept takes a lighthearted approach based on the wildly popular "Will it Blend?" videos on YouTube, his panel means serious business to educators. Votes for the "Will it Blend?" panel can be placed by registering at SXSW's panel-picker website here.
"'Will it Blend?' assembles America's preeminent thought-leaders to discuss the state of and future of blended learning," says Dennis. "I'm thrilled to have secured phenomenal talent for such a great platform as SXSW Edu!" Dennis' guests include:
- M.C. Desrosiers, Chief Program Development Officer for ASCD,
- Julie Young, President & CEO of Florida Virtual School,
- Wendy Oliver, EdD, Vice President of Learning at RANDA Solutions, and
- Lisa Gillis, Chief Academic Officer for Junior Achievement.
"Our panel will not only provide a fresh snapshot of online and blended learning, but we'll discuss where it's all headed and the constraints we must overcome to move forward," says Dennis. "We'll wrestle issues pertaining to online instructional resources, limited accessibility, we'll highlight what's really working well and identify trends versus fads. We intend to pack in as much value to the session as possible."
