Curiosity Killed the Cat…but Satisfaction Brought it Back

Saturday, April 4th, 11:15am -12:30pm - Session II

Are you curious about the conditions for success? Pitfalls and challenges? Implementation stories or theories of change sound interesting? This session will explore the successes and challenges of teachers, schools, and districts working towards personalization, blended learning, or other methods.

The American idiom “Curiosity killed the cat” had an ending to it that most have never heard: “but satisfaction brought it back”.  Join the team from IXL as we support you in finding satisfaction while being curious. Also, the risks will be worth it!
