The six team members will pursue professional development opportunities in Blended Practices, with the objective of ensuring that students gain the technical and communication skills necessary for a rapidly changing workforce. The team will receive initial training in project-based learning through the Buck Institute for Education. They will then engage in trainings with the Alvo Institute in August 2015. Their first program year will focus on piloting new blended practices and documenting student and teacher feedback, followed by a year of facilitating school-wide professional development at Fremont High Architecture Academy (Oakland, CA).
