In this session, the Highlander Institute will share its uniquely designed personalized and blended approach to professional development. Labeled the “Playground," it was created to be a fun, self-paced, blended professional learning opportunity combining some instructor-led hands-on sessions with independent/group tasks leveraging online resources.

The tasks are differentiated and scaled so participants are able to engage at their own skill level, control their pace and learning environment, and show evidence of mastery.

Session Objectives:
- Present the Playground PD concept, and discuss how districts can edit and implement for their platforms
- Reinforce student voice and choice in navigating their own curriculum pathways
